I found this video on utube.
It shows a neat trick to make snelling a double hook setup easy and make the second hook adjustable.

I cant view the video, but , it might be the same one, but in Geoff Wilsons book of illustrated fishing knots he has a same type knot, I use it on my cob / steenie traces. If I could view it , it would be nice to see if its the same knot, youtube not allowed in the country I work in!!!......:)

nice, but for those of us casting live bait, the "knot" on the shank will not work.

the weight of the baitfish on the bottom hook will cause the hook on the front to move, causing your bait to curl up!

its back to 2 x knots.

the easy way of making a trace is to do a centaury/ fig 8 knot on the shank of the hook!

this is ok for a Garrick or small salmon.

a kingie / GT will destroy the trace and you will sit with a lost fish.

been there, done that.

Ive never had that happen to me, bait always comes back fine. Unless you casting big livies, then perhaps, just clip the livie to you sinker.......problem solved.........:)
