Is the uni knot a sliding knot?

Would it work ok for hook in loop fishing?

no t sure i understand your question, the uni knot tightens down to the eye of the hook, and if you mean will it be ok for tying a loop so you can attach you hooklength to your main line via "loop to loop method" then no it would not be a suitable knot for that you want to be looking at the drop loop knot ! thats the one !

sorry if i didn't fully understand your question hope this helps you.

and welcome to our site fella !

ive had to do that before and i find because of how you use a loop and the tag end sits off at a funny angle your best best is to do it the old way and tie a small bit of light line to the bend of the hook.
but personaly given the option its best to just get some eyed hooks and use a knotless knot

I use that knot with just a slight minor change which to describe confuses me but would show you at any of the social events, and yes it is a goodun as i have landed fish into late 30's on 12lb line with it...

just the same as a normal spade hook just do a over hand knot so you end up with a hair where you would normaly trim off the loose end



or you can just add one of these



Korum Bait Arrows they hook directly onto your hook for instant use or tie onto a hair rig. Superb when fishing with soft paste.
