I've been playing around with the idea of lures without split rings to reduce noise for a while. This is a fish I picked up tonight.
I've been amazed how much more naturally a lure swims without splits.

At the moment I'm using this setup when the barra are looking but not switched on enough to hit the lure properly. A lot of the creeks and rivers up here have dried into pools and have seen a bit of fishing pressure through the dry and anything that can help me turn the tables on gun shy fish is worth a shot.

What are you using instead of a ring?????
I use dacron loops alot and find that big fish cannot bend trebles so easily.....

Bricklayers string coloured black with a permanent marker. I've noticed the drop in bent hooks too, they don't seem to be able to throw a lure as easy when they're jumping either

Wrapper geneously gave me some materials and ideas to make/tie stinger hooks and in place of split rings. But I am so absent minded to take some with me or to place them ready on lures. When I get my act together I will do it and these posts are very good reminders to kick myself again for not having done it. Martin

Great idea Wal, but I think I will have to find something stronger than brickies string, maybe rubber/ kevlar "O" rings LOL  !!!!! - as you say though, there seem to be lots of positives in your idea  Thumbs Up.
Thanks.

LOLLOLLOL I've got to admit it's hard enough to get a small enough loop on a big lure, I use fine net cord on the little lures and it does get pretty fiddly. A hollow braid may be easier as you could needle splice it and lock it with glue instead of tying Knots

I have some oval rings, but they are nickel plated steel from Janns in the US. I bought 2 sizes and they do look good on the Bradaitcha.

Fellas reading this I am afraid I am lost on the Dacron loops and brickies line could anybody give me a quick explanation please.  Sorry to trouble but most of my mates are bait fishermen and don't the same language.

The loop's attaching the trebles to the Barra lures in the pic's instead of split ring's are made of the braided cord used by Bricklayers and other tradesmen. It's usually Flouro or white, so I colour it black with a permanent marker. Braided Dacron is commonly used as backing on fly reels, and also used to be used lot's for game fishing, It's good for doing this to smaller lures, as are other braided fishing lines
Cheers
