Step No. 2

making braided split rings for bass fishing lures

Then, run your braided line through the empty hook hanger, back through the eye of the treble hook and finally once more through the hook hanger. This leaves you with three strands of braid running between the lure and the treble hook. Pull your tag-end to where the treble hook is tight to the bait, essentially matching what it looked like before you removed the split ring.

Using the tag end of his braided line, Scroggins loops a simple half hitch knot around his three stands of braid connecting the hook to the lure and cinches it down tight to the hook hanger. He then repeats this process with a second half hitch.
