Re: How do you properly bait a circle hook?
Actually after thinking about it there are some rigs that were given to me that I use, these are crimped and use spring loop line protectors. They do use beads but only on the sinker slides and the crimps are at the swivel and on their H-low rigs they also crmps at the snap and the swivel. These are Tournament Trophy Bair rigs. There is nothing wrong with crimping and using beads I just usually don't, 99.9% of the time I snell my hooks. The rigs mentioned above are some of the best ones I have seen available that you can buy, I don't buy them as I tie for a 1/4 of the cost
