Basic Fishing Gear : What Are Fishing Swivels?


Swivels; swivels come in different sizes and
shapes. Now swivel basically is used as a joint between your leader which is a heavier
material, it can be monofilament; four carbon wire but it’s, it’s; it’s a joint between
there and your fishing line. So the fishing line off the rod and reel is going to be attached
to one end of the swivel, it’s got a hole in each end and the other end is going to
be your leader. This allows for spinning, it also allows for a nice connection between
your line in your leader. Then there’s different types of swivels; this is what they call a
barrel swivel, it’s probably the most common; not nearly as expensive as some of the others
but makes a nice joint. In, in modern times we’ve come out with some super super small
swivels with really really high strength so it now allows an individual to be pretty stealthy
in putting a very small swivel on there. So the fish can’t see it and it allows you to
put a swivel instead of tying so fancy; tying the line knot it takes a lot of time. So anyways
this is what a swivel really is function is.
