The snell knot was originally invented in Great Britain for eyeless hooks. It keeps the fishing line aligned with the shank of the fishing hook to preserve strength. It should be tied on hooks with a bent eye so that the line can exit straight without a kink. It is an important knot in multiple hook rigs.
Very strong attachment to hook retaining 95% plus line strength when tied well. No knot sits on the eye of the hook. Can be tied on eyeless hooks which is handy in a survival situation.
