Fishing Tackle - Swivels
A fishing swivel consists of two rings connected to a pivoting joint. The main purpose of the swivel is to allow the line to untwist during line retrieval, preventing undesirable tangling.
- the presence of the swivel has been said to decrease the effectiveness of some types of lures, although it is shown that colored swivels can actually attract some game fish.
- three-way swivels provide a point of connection for an additional lure or length of line and are essential for certain line and hook setups.
- depending on the position of the lure, the hooks can become entangled in various ways with the swivel.
- it is also noted that swivels can act as a weak points in the line and therefore lessen the likelihood of catching a larger or harder fighting fish (swivel sizes range from a few millimeters to several centimeters, so does their strength)
