HOW TO AT­TACH A HOOK­BAIT BAND

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Catch More Off The Top -

Hold your hook in a small hand vice (I got mine for a fiver from a lo­cal car-boot sale)

Thread pellet band on to a length of fine braid and fold the braid in half and pass both ends through the eye of the hook

Bring both ends of the braid back ei­ther side of the hook shank, pulling the two ends so the pellet band pulls up to the eye

Tie an over­hand loop in the braid and, be­fore it pulls tight, put a nee­dle into the loop. Use the nee­dle to ‘roll’ the knot down to the hook eye and pull tight
