A question I asked myself numerous times was how to tie a snafu rig. Thanks to all of those who have showed me these knots, I thought I would share them with others that didn't get the privilege of getting a 1-on-1 lesson.


*Each picture has a short description below it.*

Tying a snafu rig

First part:
Here is a step-by-step how to Snell hooks using an easy version of the Snell Knot.

#1a: First, I start by cutting a length of leader about 2'. Then you take one end of the leader, and feed it through the eye.


#2a: Next, take the tag end, and loop it upwards. I usually make the tag end at least 6 inches to make it easier to tighten up. Pinch the loop.


#3a: Take the tag end, and wrap it around the shank of the hook.


#4a: Wrap it around the shank 6-8 times.


#5a: Remember the loop you pinched? Slide your grip off of the loop, and onto the wraps.


#6a: Take the tag end, and put it through the loop.


#7a: Begin tightening by pulling on both ends.


#8a: Tighten it all, and trim the tag end.

Snell another hook on the opposite end by repeating the steps above.
Second part:

#1b: Put both hooks together, doubling the line.


#2b: When you put both hooks together, the opposite end forms a loop. Grasp the loop and make a simple overhand knot.


#3b: Wrap it around once more.


#4b: Pull it tight.


#5b: Voila! Snafu rig.


#1c: To make a different version of the snafu, simply Snell 1 hook using step 1a through 8a, but instead of snelling another hook on the opposite end, slide a hook through as pictured above. Tie a surgeons knot at the end, and you have a sliding Snafu.

Now you know how you can tie your own Snafu Rig!

**Please note, when tying Snells with mono and baitholder hooks, be careful not to wrap around the barbs on the shank.**

It seems everytime I go out fishing with you guys, I learn so much, that I end up forgetting half of it! 

I do however remember the important things that were taught to me by all the fine gentleman on the board. Thanks for all your knowledge guys!

When you're bored, try this.

Step 1, start by snelling as I did in the pictures above.

Step 2, instead of wrapping 6-8 times, wrap till your fingers cramp.

Step 3, post a picture



Turn an ordinary 6/0 hook, into an EXTRAORDINARY 6/0 hook.

I prefer to quick snell a hook on each end and tie a dropper loop near the center.  thumbs up
