My Cheap Haywire twist tool and Technique

Postby Jamie D » Tue Jan 05, 2016 10:37 pm

This is my technique and tool of choice . It's not the best , or the correct way , it's just one way to tie , single strand wire onto swivels and hooks for chasing anything with sharp teeth that will bite through mono and fluro leader material. It's a good way to get started if you've never tied a haywire twist for making traces , and for anyone experienced , maybe there's something in here that may of use . Or not .

Either way , hope the info is of use to Somebody
Cheers

Love it, looks like you'll have it very consistent and the wire is great for controlling the loop end.

Jamie it's also a good way to make eyelets for DIY lures, but with no the barrel at the end of the haywire twist ..... a useful video mate.

I use the mason wire you can get at any bcf store and have never had an issue with the way it feels to work with . The wire is single strand 58 lb I use it on my pillie and slimie rigs , sometimes drop back to 44 lb for traces on slugs , I try to avoid going down to 27 lb as its fiddly and I find it harder to tie neatly and you start to open yourself up to the possibility of a bite off .

Happy new year to Steven , enjoy
