YouTube. Can teach ya some nice easy knots, and how to snell hooks with visual aid if ya need some.Kinda stupid question what kinda knots are on the need to know really tired of asking people for help when I'm out there and want to learn them for opening day I'm using 40 pound braid and might possibly learn to make my own rigs
Bad move buying cheap hooks... you'll regret. Bottomdwellers.com is a good place to buy bulk hooksAfter losing 3 cats in a row due to the line on my store bought cat rigs either snapping or the knots slipping, I've decided to start making my own. I'm wondering where I can buy bulk circle hooks for cheap.
I'm very happy with Big Game mono (http://www.cabelas.ca/product/8769/berkley-trilene-big-game-fishing-line). You can often find it on sale which is always a bonus. Don't waste your money on fluoro with the water being that dark.One more question... what type of line do i use for my leaders? Mono, Fluorocarbon, or braid?
At cabellas they are 4.50 for a 6 pack. I bought them there last week for that.Gamakatsu are my preferred choice. Unfortunately, the exchange rate on the USD is just brutal right now and so it practically costs the same after shipping/handling/exchange rate if you buy at http://bottomdwellerstackle.com/gamakatsu.htm or buy them locally (about 0.75 cents vs. 0.85 cents per 8/0 hook). I wish I could find someone that sells the 25 pack of big Gamakatsu hooks locally, but so far only found the smaller hooks in bulk packs.
