When I've used em, I've been frustrated with the hooks tangling with the line & didn't really find any noticeable difference in hook up rate or the number of fish dropped.

Assist hooks

Well I went out again today and only got one but he was a beauty.i hooked up another 4 but unfortunately I dropped them. I have ordered a new rod a 7' 2-4kg timber wolf. I realise that it's not a big ticket item but I'm only a novice so I hope it will help. One thing I'm finding is I don't hook any fish at any great distance like in the you tube shows I have been watching.all of my catches have been with 10'. Any ideas on that?
I have purchased 3 more lures and when I get them I will give them ago.
Until next time.
Regards paul

Just tied up a bunch of my own using 50lb braid size 6 and 8 daiichi 2171-B hooks. Fairly straight forward to tie just took a few attempts to get the length where I wanted. How are people attaching the spinnerbait skirts and has anyone run trials on with versus without the skirt to find if it increases strike rate or effects action.

Cheers Alex

I just wrap a couple of turns of rod binding thread around them and tie off with a reef knot, then a drop of superglue. Having a fly vice comes in real handy when making these up.
I've never compared with or without, as I've always put them on. Plenty of guys don't bother and still catch good fish.

Just whipped up half of what I've tied with these, minus the super glue but finished with half hitches as well. Will test them out once we get some still weather here and compare the walk on a lure with stock trebles, assists (no skirt) and assists with skirt.

assist hook-size

I found using forceps as a makeshift fly tying vice to be quite handy in the fiddly task of tying small assists
