A fishing swivel is a small device consisting of two rings connected to a pivoting joint on a fishing rod. Fishing swivels are usually made of metal and the pivoting joint is typically ball or barrel-shaped. The line from a fishing rod and a fishing reel is tied to one end and a length of fishing line (often terminated by a hook, lure or sinker) is tied to the other.
The main purpose of fishing swivels is to allow the line to untwist during line retrieval, preventing undesirable tangling and the presence of the swivel has been said to detract from the effectiveness of some types of lure. Fishing swivels provide a point between the main fishing line and the terminal tackle that will prevent any spinning movement of the tackle from twisting the main line. Swivels are also used to attach multiple pieces of tackle to a main line, such as connecting both a leader and hook and another separate line with a sinker.
You can choose from a variety of fishing swivels such as snap swivels, split rings, 3 way swivels, ball chain swivels, barrel swivels, double swivels and connecting links. Quick change swivels allow you to change your rigs quickly and easily. This means your rods can be in the water longer, resulting in more fish on the bank.
Typically, you can expect to find a variety of fishing swivel sizes from 1 all the way up to 24 and most fishing swivels are available individually or in multiple packs of anything from 10 up to 100 plus.
Fishing swivels are available in both brand new and used condition and you can find fishing swivels in a variety of colours, packs, sizes, products and brands.
