We intend making our own wire leaders .

Could anyone recommend double barrel leader sleeve best suited for .020" wire leader.

Find snap swivels on wire leaders a real drag. Intend using a regular power swivel instead, where it attaches to main leader then to main line via sliding sinker method.

The  Wire leader would be passed through hook eye and attached with sleeve.

Thanks  guys. :wfish

Dbbl Sllvs from most well stocked tackle shops. Found these in the spearfishing section. Good quality crimping device necessary.

Hello psy,

Thanks a ton for info. Looks very promising, and exactly what we intended  doing.

Will most certainly follow your advice.

Cheers:wfish

i just sourced the kitters and started my own. The bleeding wire you may find needs a smaller crimp. But then again with bleeding wire, its easy to wrap and tie. The 400lb wire i found is far more manegable and easier to crimp.
My experience with crimping, was gained on the Japanese Longliners, as all traces are wire with a coiled re-inforcement (basil manning stock it) and crimped. Thousands of hooks are prepared this way. Single crimps, steel not aluminium. Aluminium crimps only used for Nylon and protection fitted to eyes like small thimbles or coiled 'spring' type protection. Crimper is very important. Dont crimp incorrectly it will not grab. Allow a short protrusion as per the article.

Have a tight time

:)

Psy you are the right guy!

My research on the matter has indicated that longliners use this method.

Once again a fellow sealiner has come through.

Now we can pre-make leaders of various lengths and hook sizes.

Thanks again.

Cheers!:wfish:wfish:sval:

Have been meaning to 'follow-up' on this post.
Well here goes.
I downloaded my cell phone pics and this is what I had.
This part of a long-line rig for top-side Marlin/Sail fish.
