Try this knot mate - If using thinner line (15-20lb) have about 5 turns minimum - For heavier/thicker snoods 60lb+ you can get away with 4 turns or even 3 turns on 80lb snoods when targetting bigger species...
To stop worm(s) sliding down the hooks shank, add a fingernail sized bit of macki or squid after worms are threaded...
I use a pair of nailclippers for trimming knots, cutting line etc., and they have a hole in the end (I assume for attaching a cord). I find that if you put the bend of the hook in this hole, you can pull knots much tighter than if you are trying to hold the hook in your fingers and pull tight. A rushed News of the World-style "this is what it might have looked like" picture below.
a tucked half bloodknott is good as well as if you leave the tag about 3/4of a cm then once the worm is threaded up over the tag it then acts as a bendy barb, helping keep the worms on the hook :thumbs:
