Crimping Leaders

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I recently purchased materials for crimping leaders for some jigs I have, and I'm not sure how to go about it. They're single sleeves, not double, and rated for 15-45lb 7 strand. I got some 40 pound wire, and obviously a crimping pliers, but I'm not sure which of the slots in the pliers to use? There are some that are just small circles, and some that are U-shaped. The crimps only fit in the smallest circle one, and when I tried they still slipped out, so I just used a flat surface of the pliers to crimp it shut. I'm sure it's a bad idea, but I was... "frustrated" lol.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
