knot for split shot


Recommended Posts

i was wondering if anyone used a specific knot for holding the split shot in place. i have heard of just putting it where your tippet meets the leader, but what if you are using a long tippet? also i have heard of a 'figure 8' knot for this. anyone use this? thanks

It depends, if your using 3 or 4x tippet and catching average sized trout an overhand knot should work just fine. If your after a big fish, or if you are using fine tippet, you would better off with a blood or a surgeons knot. Cheers.

Super glue makes a good knot for holding splitshot in place.

I would rather be fishin'.
