Hi im going fishing on sunday at beechwood in elvaston and i was wanting to fish a banded hook to nylon with hard pellet and swap to a normal hook to nylon so i can fish expanders, maggots and so on. I was wondering if there was anything i can get so i can quickly change them so i dont have to cut the line then retie the hook lengths on?

Thank you

For changing hook lengths you could try these that were mentioned on here before,or similar
I got all 3 sizes, cheap enough & work ok, don't think they'll turn up before Sunday though.

I find the Guru speed beads are good with a built in swivel

Just realized the ones I posted are quite pricey, these are the ones, item number 282900325007 on ebay.

Sorry if this is a really dumb question but do you mean to fish with a pole or waggler or are you using a feeder or bomb?

First thing I thought too marky, fair question and one the answer to has quite a bearing on the advice.

If.
Waggler- then some do use a tiny swivel to also stop line twist whilst also acting as dropper weight
Pole- Only option is loop to loop I think, hence people will have another top kit set up for the alternative bait
Feeder/bomb- then any of the quick change swivels or beads suggested, plenty out there.

I use the drennan quick snaps for that. I find them very good. You can also get cheap ones of ebay from china
