Must admit,I tried exactly the same thing, with exactly the same bristlefilament, and with the same result, I could'nt for the life of me get the line to pass back through the hook, tried cutting it, pushing it thru with pliers, but Nope , reckon the 15lb would do just as good a job,and have a much lower diameter Wink

if your fishing pop-ups you can get away with a bigger hook as its hidden from view. at least a size 6 choddy for me. you need the out turned eye so your hook sits at a nice angle aswel!

cant believe no 1 has said this.. but use a sneel not.. for any type of d rig.. a sliding sneel to be precise.. i use gardener decepter hooks size 8.. before i found the sneel knot i couldnt ty a dig rig properly at all.. if u tie the sneel knot further down the shank leaving u plenty of room put the tag end through.. dont singe the end of it. until u have pulled the snell knot to the hook eye.. that works 4 me.. i would never comprimise my bottom end tackle and risk damageing my hooklength!!!! in bitter atempts to tie a rig.. that could cost me losing a monster fish...
