    Best method I have found is to run a longer tag end out of a rapala knot, then slip stinger on, get desired length and use the smallest size line crimp sleeve. Quick easy and relatively cheap, no breakage issues, even held up to a 8 pound King a few springs ago.

    No sleeves needed and only a single knot. Double the line over and tie a surgeon’s loop (double overhand knot) such that when you pull the loop tight, the double line is slightly longer than the length you want. Trim one tag end tight, and trim the other with a 1/2” or so left.

    Now pull the loop tight with the knot at one end. Put the other end through the stinger eye, pass the treble through the loop in the line, and pull tight.

    Repeat this connection around the bend of the main hook. The tag end lets you have something to grab onto for removing it if needed. Way easier than playing with crimp sleeves, and you have a double line to help share the load.
