Hi everyone

In preperation for an upcoming kayakfishing, I've been planning different traces for different purposes and species. My question is if I can attatch a snap swivel to my mono, then clip on the respective trace??

I will be fishing live and dead bait as well as rapalas and halcos. I hope this will let me quickly switch between traces and lures. But is this a good idea? Will it still be strong? Or should I just practice tying knots quickly to switch them?

Any other ideas are welcome.

Thanks. Mozzie

These work well in correct size to suite your tackle

Or these both do not interfere with lure action and are strong.

I use the "paper clip" one and have had no problems at all. It's called a Swanell.
