Conway Bowman knows a thing or two about fishing to toothy predators. (See the video below.) Whether you’re fishing for mako sharks or pickerel, you need something to stop the teeth from biting through your leader. Here, Conway explains how to make a haywire twist at both ends of a piece of wire, creating a bite-proof leader. Anyone who chases muskies, pike, bluefish, and the like needs to know how to do this.

He never explained how to tie to fly line or leader.
He doesn’t explain, nor show the specific difference between an “X-wrap” and the “Barrel-wrap”.
