  • tying hooks

      6-7 for me. The more turns you make, the more stress is put on the line to get the knot tight. I use the same knot ( domhoff) for spade or eyed.

              i put 5 on a 20 and smaller and 6 on a 18 and bigger like someone says the more you put on the more stress around spade you put on to it and more chance of slipping over spade

                      pickering would get you platting fog as long as you followed what he said franco cant see a hook with all his park drive smoke
