Haywire twist?
« on: July 08, 2019, 09:53:40 AM »
Got my tackle suggestion list for Guyana.  Says catfish/Arapima rigs should be black swivel and 130 lb solid wire tied with haywire twist.

First I heard of that but seems easier than crimps

 I think crimps are easier, but they don't work in single strand wire. At least I don't think so.

 You will be saving the weight of the crimp tool if you need to make additional rigs also.

Itís really easy, Iíve forgone crimps on all my rigs (except casted) with cable and single strand. Learning to back braid and haywire is a must if you use wire often.

Man, you are going to have some fun!  Are you going down using Steve Yatomi from Adventure Travel Alliance?
You can't catch them from your computer chair.

You've got a lot of cool tricks up your sleeves Chris.  Wish you'd post some DIY threads in the Rigs section  ;)

Knowing how to do these makes it easy to rig in the dark and travel light.
