Hi,
i have seen illustrations to properly tie the line to hooks which have round eyes, but the hooks that we get here are having a flattened head instead of the eye (i have a picture attached), can any of you give an illustrations as to the proper way of tying the line to such a hook.

Hey,

These are good hooks and are great for carp.

Here is a nice site with lots of knots. http://www.tsurishopjapan.com/article_i ... icles_id=8
Here's a good video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3Im8x3i2Nk

I tie my hooks a little differently. Learnt if from my dad when I was @ 4.

Similar to the video shown, the difference being while wrapping the hook (making the turns with the line on the shank), I make @ 5 - 6 loops around the shank instead of tight wraps & then threadle the cut end of the line through all the loops & pull it together. The cut end is well concealed & the knot will not come free.

regards,
Keyur

Totally agree with Ken, spade end hooks are my first choice for size 8 hooks and smaller. I also like to whip a size 12 or 14 just above the main hook using the Snell knot. I reckon most of my fish are lip hooked on the top hook.

The best knot for spade end hooks is the snell knot. There are a few ways shown to tie it but the simplest and most effective is shown in this link

I've never had one of these knots fail but do make sure to keep the line wet. I pull mine tight under the tap or hold the hook under water.

tight lines
