    I was able to tie a couple of these last night with 80 pound. They will likely need to be tied again to get the lengths correct.

    Question, do you glue these to keep them from loosening? If so, what do you use for glue?

    Thanks

    No glue needed; just pull them tight. Hook the hook on something if you don’t have the strength in one finger in the bend and really pull down as tight as you can.

    Thanks, my concern was that with this one the lead could slide back through the eye of the hook and loosen the knot.
