easy whip finish
Posted 26 July 2006 - 09:33 PM
So i use my threader to whip finish. Just lay the threader across your thread head and wrap around it 5 times. then set your bobkin down, cut the thread at a managable length and pass it thru the threader. then pull the threader back thru the whip fish with the terminal end and pull tight. It's easier done than said

For conventional fishing, I use the hand whip finish to make snelled hooks. Had trouble with them until I realized that the process is slightly different, but the results are just the same.
