Just a very small tip.. use a small clip so that you can quickly change jigs without having to re-tie any knots if you want to go for a different colour.
Most of the time I find it's quicker to tie a knot than **** around with pliers trying to open the little bastard 'ez' clip things

Use your fingers, it takes 2 seconds. :thumbsup:

Wow never would have thought of that
All the ones I've used are too small and tough to press in. Tying a knot takes 2 seconds too, doesn't effect the swim either

You'd be the only I've heard of using pliers for lure clips.

First time for everything and each to our own. Who knows, it may make Kimtown a Pioneer, a Trail Blazer, a Leader , , , , in the way that some of us utilise tools.

Thank-you person who was the first ever person to work out to bite off opposing corners of a TimTam and then used said TimTam as a straw to suck up a warm beverage then plonk it in their mouth , , , , a TimTam explosion of decadence :super: , , , , or am I just being a Piggy , , , , oups, disregard that I said Piggy , , , , let's go with , , , , Gutzz , , , , yeah, Gutzz sounds more Blokey :a_goodjob:




I don't use Lure Clips but I do use swivels. I use the top ones. The others seem to challenge my sausage like fingers. I have on occasion, when I did try those other snap swivels AND had squid slim laden sausage fingers, I have used a pair of pliers. But more so on the Squid Jig loop to position the loop accurately.

But not these swivels, with no locking setup on them , , , , the can pull straight

I do have pliers, not this fancy. I have simple fishing long nose pliers

But these pliers (outside of cutting wire) do everything fingers can do, if we choose too , , , , but not advised as a good substitute for a finger/fingers in nose picking or butt scratching , , , , and DEFINITELY not performed in the other order, with the nose picking last :o_0:


BUT we all have to agree, with some jobs that require a firm grip , , , , you can't beat a hand :thumbsup: , , , , well you can , , , , but good luck with a pair of pliers :-D


Cheers, Bugatti

I think most ladies use pliers so they don't crack their nail polish

I always give things a go , , , , you just never know.

I bought a pack of Choc Coated Teddy Bears after your post, to give what you suggested a go , , , , and also while I was at the Shops, I thought that the Monte Biscuit might work the same.

Gave it a go after dinner (Snapper Cutlet , , , , unfortunately not "Seb Style") , , , , but the dunking , , , , man o man , , , , , decadent :super:

Hey Homie, do the teddy bear with cold milk so choc doesn't melt. Lop off an ear and opposing toe and suck it! :cheers:
