Snell Knot – Straight Eye Hook
In this video, Che Carson demonstrates the correct method of how to tie a Snell Knot to a straight eye hook. This knot was invented for tying on eyeless hooks, hence it involves tying the knot around the shank of the hook, as opposed to the eye of the hook.
Snelling two hooks together enables the perfect presentation of large fleshy baits such as slabs/fillets, whole fish, whole squid, etc. The size of the gap between the hooks is dependent on the size of the bait you wish to use.
