    may be a daft question but ive tied a fluoro leader to my braid,ill be fishing up here in Northumberland for Pollock of the rocks with soft plastics,ill be using a cone head above the hook/lure,if I want to tie a few up on say 10 inch of fluoro ready to use is there a way to attatch them to the leader so I don't cut the leader each time,i guess a swivel would cause the lure to spin when working it back,i have some small rings that get used in carp fishing so anyone use these to do this ?
    thanks in advance for any advice

    Hi Peter

    Im pretty sure James Bass on TLF used a very small ring to attach his leader to braid, you could PM him to see which ones. I met him a couple times and he indicated he got on fine this way.

    I would just put a cone head on to the length of leader and then a lure clip. Change the SP at your leisure, you may wish to put a small bead between the two as I've found the cone head can bang on to the clip and pop it open sometimes.

    Alternatively, you could use a Spro bottom jig or similar along with a lure clip. Tying on a new leader section every time you need to change lure seems a bit more of a fiddle.

    I usually just rig a standard texas rig - cone weight followed by bead then hook. If you want to change hook size or weight then just cut the leader at the hook, change what you need to change and tie the hook on again. I use the palomar knot which is really easy and quick to tie so takes about 1 minute in total to swap weights or hooks. This will probably be the most weedless method, but the way David has mentioned will work if you can't be arsed tying a new knot every time you want to change it up
    I also use the spro bottom jigs and similar that Danny mentioned, which work really well and make changing hook/weight really easy.

    Checkout the leadheads called cheburashka. They come in various types and much cheaper.
