How do you put a weight and hook on a fishing line?
Tie a hook on the end of your fishing line with one of your fishing knots. Pinch one or two small split shot sinkers to your main line about 6-12 inches from the hook to add a bit of weight to your line (this will keep your bait suspended vertically). If there is current, you can add one or two more split shots.
Do you need a swivel for fishing?
Most lures, such as a crankbait, will not twist on the retrieve, so a swivel is not required. So if you are fishing for a species that tends to twist the line, the best bet is to use a swivel. The steel leader with a swivel is the best choice when pursuing fish with sharp teeth.
