What is a knot protecter bead in fishing?


Thi bead protects the knot from the sliding sinker. it is placed between the knot and the sinker

I would not suggest using a bead to protect your knot. The beads edges around the hole on both sides can become sharp and cut/fray your line at the knot causing it to become weak.

I would recommend using silicone airline tubing (you can get this at your local fish store, i use the mini) or the "Owner" soft beads, either of the 2 will protect your knot with no worries.

How do you tie a fishing knot?

The one I tie most often is the Improved Clinch Knot. Easy to tie, and if tied right, the more the fish pulls the tighter the knot gets.

Some people prefer the Palomar knot. It is one of the best knots you can use for mono 100% knot strength. I have used this knot for years and never had it slip or break at the knot......Highly recommended. The Palomar knot is a great knot for sure, but not for crankbaits. It can make the bait saw off to one side or the other.

How to make the knot on a snare trap?

Assuming you are making a snare from a rope or line, and depending on its size, use a bowline on the bight. If you are using a bigger line or cable, (1/4" or bigger ) use a whipped end or a small cable clamp. If you use a whipped end, be sure to glue your lashes.

Use a hammer to distort the shape of the tube.
