Both Fresh and Saltwater anglers find good use for the Snell. It is a simple but strong knot that wraps around the hook shank rather than just going through the eye of the hook. The snell positions the hook for a good hook set. Many bass fishermen like this knot and you will see pre tied rigs in bait shops. There is no need to buy pre-tied rigs. Watch this short video using high visibility cord and you will be able to tie your own Snell Knot.
