Thread: Invisn Swivels

  1. Default Invisn Swivels

    I went bass fishing yesterday and used an Invisn Swivel for the first time. I'm impressed. It really helped prevent my line from tangling, and it didn't affect my casting or the action of my fly.

    How did you use it, to connect the line to the leader?

    I connected the leader to the tippet. It was somewhat difficult to thread, then I used an improved clinch knot and slid the knot into place, between the two notches.

    Makes it a lot easier to find when it's spelled correctly.

    Because it's invisible? (sorry, I had too. )

    Thanks Randy. Do you think it's a better connection than, say, a double surgeon knot? That's what I usually use to connect tippet to leader.

    I'm thinking of connecting one end of the swivel to the line with a bit of mono and then the other end of the swivel to the leader. Might make switching out leaders even quicker than with a loop to loop.

    they will pull the end of your line under if you are using a floater. they are great for trolling flies in a boat or fishing streamers in high fast water.
