    I am taking the advice from several of you guys and changing my spoon treble hooks to siwash. They are the open ended variety as mentioned. The question is: Do I attach the single hook to the spoon or do I keep the split ring and attach to it?:confused: Thanks guys

    keep the split ring. without it the hook might impede the spoons action.

    Never gave the action change much thought. Thank you very much ezbite.
  4. Basic line of thought when changing hooks on spoons.

    -weigh the new single vs. the old treble on a postage scale (you want the single to be nearly the same weight)

    -if the spoon has a split ring, then use it

    -if the spoon does not have a split ring, do not add one

    Enjoy all of those fish you will catch with the singles.
