Re: Eye splice in double braid

You can use a coat hanger as a fid, it will fit any size line, almost. Just bend it to the shape of the fid, then bend the ends 90 degrees facing each other. The last part is the hardest. 1/4 in. is all you want at the ends. The ends are somewhat sharp and act as a hook in the line, then just tape over the core and fid end.
