The Snell knot is widely used and known in bass fishing as the best knot for flipping and pitching straight shank worm hooks into thick cover. Many believe it outperforms other knots due to the fact that it gives the hook a pendulum effect on the hookset if tied correctly. The snell knot is also used extensively when rigging walleye with live bait rigs and spinners, as well as a go-to rigging knot in the trout and salmon world.
