Twitch Tip: Clip Instructions
I am big on fishing efficiencies and having my line in the water so I can increase my odds of catching. The Twitch Clip enables switching lures fast. Similar concept as a snap swivel but Twitch Clip allows quicker bait changes, is a 1-piece construction and doesn't have a swivel (although one could be added). We'll give instructions on how to use the Twitch Clip but first we'll quickly cover the benefits.
#1 is the ability to switch lures fast. In this video it takes me 2 seconds. Don't blink because you'll miss it.
#2 - Secure and Add Action to Lures
Secures lures with the lure lock. The lure is locked in a loop and it adds action to lures.
#3 - Multiple Guests Rods
If you take guests fishing who don't tie knots this will save the frustration of re-tying lures on multiple rods in seconds not minutes.
#4 - Keep your leader length
No need to cut down your leader anymore. Eliminate re-ties.
#5 - Bring Less Rods
Switching lures is easy so bring less rods.
Simple instructions for using the clip
1) Tie line at end (A) - the side with the 45 degree bend.
2) Feed lure / hook eyelet through wire end (b). Slide lure to opposite end (c) to lock in place.
The knots I use on the clip
I typically have braid on my combos so I usually add a fluorocarbon or mono leader (for topwater). Then I tie on the clip using an improved clinch knot or polymer. Depending on the situation such as water clarity (or laziness) I may also tie the clip directly to braid using a polymer knot.
The clip eliminates re-tying. You gain fishing time not dealing with knots when re-tying. Now you can change lures without the hassles of cutting and re-tying.
Save valuable fishing time by tying less knots and switching lures fast using the Twitch Clip.
