Here’s a top tip for extending your tying area when working with Bass hooks. Take a paper clip and cut a 10 mm section off. Tie on directly behind the hook eye so it over laps by about 5mm. You can use a couple of coats of head cement but I use UV resin just to hold it in place tightly. Now you have a full 10mm instead of 5mm to tie you materials onto, and the gap is still wide enough to allow for decent hook ups.
