    Default Jigging Master AG Chain Knot

    As you might know, I becomes an exclusive distributor of Jigging Master products in the US. I am going to introduce their products on thebassbarn as a sponsor of thebassbarn.
    One thing I notice that they have been using AG Chain knot with confidence for years. It is very simple ( continuous half-hitch knot) and they regard this knot as one of the strongest they tested.

    Here is step by step tutoring photos how to tie the knot.

    They never mention about glue, but I would use it as I use glue for any knot.

    Looks easy enough. Do you straight tie to the jig or do you use a swivel? Thank you for sharing!

    I sometimes tie directly and sometimes use a swivel.
    I don't see much difference. The twisting line problem without swivel is not severe when jigging than popping.

    We did really bad with direct tie to jig? Felt it gave the jig a real side to side motion? (Especially with the shimano's) The swivel seemed to give the jig a straighter line and allowed the jig to flutter more? Could you show a picture of how you use the swivel? Thank you so much for sharing. May sound funny but one day with many boats hooked up around us on jigs, I got pissed. Took the hook off the factory swivel, straight tied to that swivel. Then put a ring on and just put on one assist hook. With in 40 minutes we had a 90lber in the boat and I've been a swivel guy since.

    Tying directly without swivel is not bad as you think.
    Here is picture of how I use swivel.

    The half hitch seems like a loose not towards the tag end. Must be a better way to finish? Glue, heat....

    Default AG Chain Knot

    While I'm sure this knot worls well,I've always used a version of a nail knot ,sometimes referred to as a Grippr knot. They can esily be tied with a knot tool . I double wrap the swivel and lay in about nine loops ovrer the tool srarting at the far end wrapping back to hook. Then simply slide bitter end of ld under lloops cinch up ,great knot , the tool makes it easier on hevier lds.

    The nail knot is one of the best I know for offshore use. Do you know of a site that might have pictures on how to tie it by chance. We usually crimp all lines over 80 lbs as we do not like the size of the knots or more important trust them on the heavier lines. The nail knot is an exception to this rule as it performs outstanding when we do not crimp. I like this knot Kil mentioned for jigs as it seems easy to tie.

    Do you have any reasoning for why you would use a swivel? Or not use one? Are there certain conditions? Fish?
