What do you use between trace and pike fly? I generally tie on filling mill pike fly hooks but cannot get a snap that I’m happy with (I’m using authanic wire then I want a snap link to fly). The bend in the Berkley cross loks won’t go round the eye, I tried Seible (excuse spelling) links but can’t even open them at my tying table let alone when on the water. Many other links are either too thick in the wire or lock too tightly in the eye giving the fish leverage. Obviously straight leger style links will pull out with anything other than a jack.
