Shrink Tube Or No Shrink Tube

Recommended Posts

nice one Ian although ive been on here for years but this is a new account so.... :)

 

I like to keep things simple myself, my rigs usualy consist of either leadcore or tubing, lead clip and then just a simple rig with maybe abit of putty. I try to keep everything the same sort of colour if i can to.

For braided or coated braid which is stripped near the hook, after watching some fish manage to eject very easily an "uncovered" knotless knotted hook I switched back to a line aligner, normally using Shrink tube, but it can be just as effective with silicon tube :wink:

 

When it comes to very supple mono I may well use silicon tubing to create that line aligner. If I use stiffer hooklinks, then I use tubing to cover the knot, the hook is tied on rather than knotless knotted.

 

I don't believe in the current fashion for a kicker as such, I prefer the line aligner set-up, normally simply following the shank of the hook, its curve or straightness.
