    A snap swivel to attach lure would make it quick and easy to change I'm just wary of trout get suspicious if theres a snap swivel in front of the lure?

    I use these for my softbaiting rig. I use it for jig heads, slow jigs, dropper rigs and small casting lures. They are tiny and I've never had one come off. Keep the tension on any fish is the rule anyway.

    haven't noticed any difference in catch rate but usually the lure works better if the swivel is up the line a bit also looks like the lure is chasing something.you can do what @mickey duck suggests and put a fly up above the lure as well but with my skilful hands with three thumbs only ever hook myself so gave up on it.i also crush the barbs on lures I use myself as a better hookup will happen with less pressure you just have to keep the line tight at all times not recommended for lures the kids use. only downside I have had with crushing barbs down is sometimes the fish get both jaws locked on the lure and cant breathe so they give up virtually straightaway

    Nah Ryan,

    If your using a spinning reel.
    Smallest barrel swivel you can find, 1.5m to 2m 4-6lb Flouro leader... Hopefully braid is white or neutral colour, fluro yellow,green or pink is a bit of a giveaway. or at least faded couple of uni-knots either side of leader and rapala knot at the business end to give a natural action.

    You need the barrel swivel to take the rotation off the line that the spinning reel impart - don't bother if a overhead reel is used in casting - just a braid to fluro join knot needed then.

    Rapala knot is important as it gives a loop end for the lure to have a easy natural action but still be attached.

    Do this and watch your catch / hit rate go through the roof.
    Screaming reels boys!!!

    Leader??? Crikey, I've been hooking straight onto my 4lb fireline without any issues, it's the light charcoal neutral colour. Mostly use the good ole' Black Toby in the Canterbury streams. I do use a straight through leader on the Tassie Devil though, have them individually rigged ready to go.
    There's some good info here that I must take note of

    Fg knot yes it's hard deal with it and learn the best knot. Even harder with tiny line, I fish 4lb braid and 10lb leader I like a leader of around 500ish long use a uni knot to tie on spinner as you will have direct contact with the lure to feel what it's doing and be able to control it's actions!!

    Nope too big.... you want very very small and barrel style as the trout will see your wire of the snap and too close to the lure. Rapala knot is the way to go on fluro unless its dark brackish or peaty water - Then drennan subsurface green mono is the go to or copper coloured mono's that are availble.

    you might get the young dumb silly trout on a snap swivel but you won't get the big ones...
