HOW2TV: How to tie the Snell knot (video)



Knot Tying with Jacob Wheeler. Here’s another knot you really need to know for heavy-cover flipping situations. Now I’m going to use this particular knot only on a straight-shaped VMC hook with a bigger weight. Especially when you’re flipping around heavy cover, ah, like flipping bushes or flipping matted vegetation. It’s really where it performs really well.

You take your line, and the key is your setting your hook out, this is a treble hook, but see how this point turns towards me. That is the key. If you use a straight-shaped hook in heavy cover you need to put that straight towards you before you put it through the eye of the hook. You put it through the eye of the hook. You give yourself plenty of line. You are going to bring some of that line through the shank of the hook and you double it over. You cannot have too much line in this deal. Just double it over, pinch it up there. Now what I’m going to do is I’m going to pinch I’m gonna rotate around that loop, normally around four times, so there’s four. After the fourth time, I’m going to put that tag in through that bottom loop that I just wrapped around. Grabbing that line, outside the line that’s outside the loop of your line, and tightening it up. There we go. Super easy, super simple. You cut your tag end off and now watch what happens. With me tying it like that it’s going to kick up. Remember how that point was out before we first started. And your weight comes down into the hook it’s going to kick up and hook that fish, every time.
