some tips:

Image

Loop the backing around the reel arbor and tie a double overhand knot at the end of the loose end.
With the loose end tie an overhand knot around the backing line.
Tighten the overhand knot around the backing line while bringing the double overhand knot at the loose end close to the backing line.
Pull on the backing until both knots touch and slide hard against the arbor. Job done!

Thread the leader tippet through the eye of the hook, leaving at least four inches (10 cm) of spare material to complete the knot.
Wrap the loose end of the tippet around the leader five times.
Bring the loose end of the tippet over to the hook, and insert it through the loop of nylon you have now made in front of the eye of the hook.
Bring the loose end back up and pass it through the new loop you created in step 3.
Pull the knot down slowly, using a thumb nail to bring the turns close behind the eye. Do not pull tight yet...
Spit on the knot to lubricate it.
Tighten the knot by pulling on the leader with the hook bend secured on the ring of your scissors. Jiggle to fully tighten the knot.
Now trim off the spare end.

Hi all,
These are very useful pics - good job :-)

If anyone can also post pics of how to attach spinners etc that will be good.

Arokiaraj,

There is a better way to learn. Go to youtube.com and metacafe.com and do a search for fishing knots. You will get a lot of films, animation and other moving graphic images. Some of them are very good and make understanding and learning easy.

Susheel,
Sorry, missed your query!
When spinning-At end of line, attach a Duolock and leave it be.
All you have to do is to clip on and clip off the various spinners.Will post pics tomorrow.
The best knot I found was teh palomar-simplicity personified, strong as ever.
Just remember, the more the loops and knots, down goes your line capacity by as much as 50%

Yup Doc, That's good advice. Attach a snap swivel and you can keep switching lures without losing line.

Losing line really hurts. I hate it when I have to throw away a piece of braid.

Sorry for the cell phone pics-shifted recently and havent unpacked non essentials like camers yet (I'm sure Lenny will wish for lightning to strike me!)

How to attach spinners to line? here goes
A duolock/swivel combo is a safety pin like device, with a ball swivel and is attached to your main line either as one piece, or make leaders of 12-24 inches,using 20lb mono,with swivel at one end and a duolock at the other end.Duolock you might get them in other brands, in various sizes.
If you need some, PM add and I'll send some samples across as someone is coming to Bangalore tomorrow
Best

Two types of duolock swivels

Spinner atached to duolock/swivel-Tie mainline to swivel, you can attach/detach spinners /lures as required

Close up of scum frog.Leader is 18lb mono, with duolock clip at one end (attach to lure) and swivel at other end (tie on main line)

THE GRINNER/DOUBLE GRINNER KNOT
This is a very strong knot which can be used for attaching monofilament lines, braid and specialist hook length lines to eyed hooks, swivels and rings etc.


Pass the line through the eye of the hook or swivel twice


Form a large loop and hold this between your thumb and fore finger. Pass the loose end through the loop.


Feed the line through the loop five times.


Wet the knot pull tight and trim.

I have usee this for years with lines up to 18lbs & it has never let me down, a little harder to tie with small diatmeter lines but worth the effort to have total confidence.
