Cara-cara untuk mengikat Snell Knot
1. Feed one end of the leader through the hook eye going 2-4 inches past the eye. Then feed the other end of the leader through the eye in the opposite direction. Hold the hook and leader ends between thumb and forefinger. Allow the excess leader to hang down in a large loop.
2. Holding the hook and leader in your left hand, grab this excess leader loop and the part of this loop close to the hook and wrap it over the hook shank and both ends of the leader toward the hook's barb. Go around the hook 7 or 8 times, keeping the newly made wraps contained and tight with your left thumb. Pull the short end of the leader that is through the eyelet with your right hand slowly, until the entire loop of leader feeds through it. Be sure to continue holding the 7 or 8 loops with your left hand so the knot will not unravel.
3. When it is almost tight, use your fingernails to slide it up against the eye of the hook. Finally, pull the short end of the leader and the standing line at the same time to completely tighten the knot. Trim the tag end.
4. Tying the Snell Knot is complete.
