Which hook knot do you use?

Recommended Posts

Chris,

 

Do you use a hook tyer? Can you do it bankside? I'm all thumbs!

(Great knot though)

if you can only go through the eye once it's really hard to beat a good ole clinch knot.

 

Again, the problem you describe is 100% angler error.

ahh, that brings us back to the picture in the first post, the improved clinch knot, that has 98% of the line strengh, most reliable and easy to tie :yahoo: : http://www.animatedknots.com/improvedclinch/index.php?Categ=fishing&LogoImage=LogoGrog.jpg&Website=www.animatedknots.com


Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.


New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.

Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.

Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.

new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.

Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Barry,

 

That's why I suggested "angler error" was involved.

Some of the fancy new lines are very fussy about knots.

I tie all hooks - even eyed hooks as if they were spade ends - though the line goes through the eye if there is one. Think its called the Dumhoff knot (IIRC)...

Domhoff? That's the one I've been using for decades and is very easy to tie. More recently I've been using the Matchman or Drennan tyers, or using the knotless knot if a hair is needed.

Palomar for me 90% of the time - but it's almost certainly not the best for presentation which is what davedave wants, I'd go with the Domhof for that - tied properly it's better than using a hook tyer cos the tag end gets pulled through and cut off - with a hook tyer you're fishing with line that's been pulled through the knot.

http://www.netknots.com/knot-apps/i'm a uni ( don't confuse a grinner with a uni ) man myself ,uni for eyed hooks and swivels etc ,double uni for connecting two lines (even if they're different dia) ,i used to use a uni knot type knot for spadeed hooks but i don't do spaded hooks anymore ,i mostly use hook-2-line ready tied from the shops (although i can if needbe use a hook tyer & make my own) and then use eyed hooks as back up .the only other knots i use is 3 granny knots to tie line to spools.overhand loop to make errr loops and a knotless knot for making hair rigs.just remembered i occationally use a windknot (not by choice) to tangle things up on a cast or two :doh:

 

the uni is easy to tie and as never let me down.

 

single uni (wrongly described as being the same as a grinner ,but its not )

double uni ,for tying two lines together

Where do you fish for dinks?


English as tuppence, changing yet changeless as canal water, nestling in green nowhere, armoured and effete, bold flag-bearer, lotus-fed Miss Havishambling, opsimath and eremite, feudal, still reactionary, Rawlinson End.
