Introduced by fishing writed Rod Harrison for attaching lures to leader on a swinging loop to ensure no diminution of lure action.
This simple and strong knot is adequate for tying hooks and swivels to line testing up to 25 kilograms breaking strain: It is an especially firm favourite with whiting and snapper fisherman.
Suitable for attaching lures and hooks to light, medium and heavy weight monofilaments traces. An advanatage of this knot is that it can be used with heavier lines (15-60kg) and the knot can be formed without undue friction and doesn’t need lubrication.
Original introduced for hooks with spatulate eyes. The snell is appropriate for hooks with up or down turned eyes when the leader needs to be aligned along the shank of the hook. This knot is most important in many two hook rigs. The eye of the hook need not be threaded.
The dropper loop can be tied anywhere along your line enabling the fisherman or angler to use multiple droppers. It has applications in both recreational and commercial fishing and is a better, stronger knot than the figure of eight.
