Last year I bought what I thought probably was tie-able wire leader, AFW Surfstrand, at Mills Fleet Farm; They didn't have Cortland Toothy Critter which is the stuff I wanted. I had read a tip about using tie-able wire leader with swim jigs so pike can't break you off. Finally just tonight I tried tying the wire that I had bought, but I couldn't do a very good job of making the recommend knots out of the stuff. I am thinking now I must have gotten the wrong stuff altogether because it definitely wasn't happening.
I'll have to call tomorrow to see if Reeds or Thorne Brothers Outpost carries Toothy Critter.
I lost far to many swim jigs to pike last year.
