If you're using heavier line the more commonly used fishing knots just don't give the kind of connection you need for your terminal tackle. Very heavy monofilament and wire trace requires the use of a metal crimp to give the most secure, neatest and best looking connection to swivels and hooks.
Line crimps, also known as fishing crimps and trace climps have been used for decades for monofilament traces where large predators are being hunted. These types of fish require large diameter monofilament or wire line to guard against strong, sharp teeth and sheer swimming power.
Here at Gerry's Fishing we offer a great range of fishing crimps, designed to affix hooks and swivels to trace line in a neat, secure way. We stock crimp pliers as well, the absolute best way to use our crimps!
