    It's something to do with keeping herring on the hook, but I've never heard of it.

    I know one guy who wraps the front half of his herring in plastic kitchen wrap, then puts them on a 2-hook mooching rig and makes a couple of cut back by the tail for extra scent. Never tried it, but he swears by it. Could that be what you're talking about?

    I've seen some stuff used to wrap a piece of herring or sardine on to plugs. Almost kind of type of thread/thin string that sticks to itself and won't come off easily even without using a knot to hold it in place...???

    Interesting.... Love to learn more. I have no problems keeping herring on, but when my hands are full running the boat and guests do their own baiting, we can sure go through a bunch of herring in short order.

    Did some googling around and came up with this stuff in several discussions and catalogs. I'd prefer a clear version, but I wonder if that's what the talk is about.

    Ah, this one looks more useful for herring.

    That's what I have for wrapping a piece of herring or sardine onto a plug. It's got a little bit of elastic stretch to it. Got it at B&J's.

    Yes magic thread is used mainly in two ways. One as MRFISH states to attach a herring filllet to a quickfish or other plugs for back trolling for kings and silvers. It binds to itself so you dont need to tie a bunch of tiny knots.
    The other use for it is when tying spawn sacs. You take a piece of mesh add some salmon eggs Usually a few single salmon eggs real or fake. Use the square of mesh to make a bag around the eggs. Wrap three times around the top and pull tight do it again then cut it off and you now have a spawn sac for salmon,trout, or steel head fishing.

    I use this for keeping herring on the hook when surf casting.
