The knots for Snelling a hook

2 different ways

The snell knot is the strongest of all saltwater fishing hook knots. Quick and simple method of attaching line to a hook with an up or down turned eye. Of course when you snell a hook you need to have both ends of the line available. In other words the free end or the trace end has to pass back through the eye .

Using the Uni-Knot to Snell a Hook

1) Thread six inches of line through the eye of the hook.

2) Hold the line against the hook's shank, and form a Uni-Knot circle.

3) Make five to seven turns through the loop and around the standing line and hook's shank.

4) Tighten by pulling the standing line in one direction and the tag end in the other.
