I always hated to fish bite tippets made out of steel wire, because after a short time they started to crinkle.
Since two years, I fish bite tippets made out of “Knot2Kinky”. No more crinkle during normal fishing, cheap, easy to do and very light weight. Everything what I wanted from a bite tippet!
Let me show you how I “tie” these bite tippets:
You need Knot2Kinky with the strength you wanted them, Bug Bond, a snap, a dubbing needle or a nail, a side cutter and 2 minutes of time.
Take a piece of Knot2Kinky in the length you want the tippet +6 cm. For my standard tippets I use 36 cm Knot2Kinky. When it’s done, it’s around 30 cm long.
Make a perfection loop on the one side. A nail or the dubbing needle helps to tighten the knot.
Take a side cutter and nip away the waist. Be carefull, the end ot the Knot2Kinky is sharp like a needle after cutting it.
Cure the Bug Bond with the uv torch. Do all the preceded steps again on the other end of the Knot2Kinky wire.
Now, you only have to attach a snap on the one side and you got a great bite tippet!
Last point, go to your water and catch a big, mean, toothy predator! ;-)
