Snell Knot

Published by at 5:26 pm under Fishing Knots

Snell Knot1. Insert one end of the leader through the hook’s eye extending one to two inches past the eye. Insert the other end of the leader through the eye in the opposite direction pointing toward the barb of the hook. Hold the hook and leader ends between thumb and forefinger of your left hand. Leader will hang below the hook in a large loop.  
Snell Knot2. Take the part of this loop that is closest to the eye and wrap it over the hook shank and both ends of the leader toward the hook’s barb.  
Snell Knot3. Wrap for 7 or 8 turns and hold wraps with left hand. Grip the end of the leader that is through the eyelet with your right hand and pull it slowly and steadily. Hold the turns with your left hand or the knot will unravel. When knot is almost tight, slide it up against the eye of the hook. Grip the short end lying along the shank of the hook with a pair of pliers. Pull this end and the standing line at the same time to completely tighten the knot. Trim the tag end.
