    Proper way to rig spinning lures

    How do you blokes rig light spinning lures for trout (tazzies, rapalas, blue fox etc) I have a light setup running 8lb braid and have mostly 7-9 gram lures. Should I be using a leader and if so how to attach it to main line and lure?

    Interstested in replys here....saltwater would use a rapala knot or an un cinched uni as for soft baiting.

    uni knot .tassies I run the line through them then tie to a swivel with a flasher fly or tie to a swivel then run a leader through tied to flasher fly.i find if you don't use a swivel within a metre or so of trolled lures the line develops twists and wind knots easily.

    yip tassies much better rate of fish into net if you have it runnung through rather than on crappy wire set up they come with. we use a snap swivel and single hook behind and find that works best for us.Berg if you running swivel a metre above tassie try threading the likes of a #4 fuzzy wuzzy fly onto lien above swivel,it gives impression the wee fish is chaseing something,when Ive run rig like this (always used it with lead line as running swivel) the hook up rate was 50/50 on fly or tazzie.

    FG knot for braid to mono any day. Very easy and fairly quick to do once you've done it a couple of times.https://youtu.be/oohOoOOmbNk

    No not really Gibo. They don't even make very good bait.

    I find most knots from braid to mono are quite lumpy and interrupt line flow when casting and retrieving. So I make wind on leaders with a short piece of dacron and tie a short double in the braid.
    Search "tying double" and "make wind on leaders" on youtube.

    when we are sea fishing with braid I used to double the braid then make a loop with the doubled braid then go trough twice with the end of the double pull up slowly and even would wet it before pulling then trim the tag close to the knot left about 5mm no more .don't know what knot strength it is but never had a problem as long as it was pulled tight then we could loop a swivel or swivel snap hook onto this.if you use a swivel you can rig your lures on a leader with a snap hook and change them easily great with kids as they always wanted to try every lure in the box.
