King Sling Knot

This knot offers the angler an easy-to-tie end loop knot that is used primarily as a connection for crank baits. This knot allows the lure to work freely, making it more lifelike, and resulting in more strikes.

Insert tag end of the line through artificial bait so that it extends 8 to 10 inches.King Sling Knot 1
