Try the following tips to prevent baits from separating/sliding apart on the hair:

Baits have separated on hair giving unsatisfactory presentation.

TIP #1 - Tie a larger hair loop so that the knot sits inside the lower bait.

Tie a larger hair loop (bottom).

Sorted! Lower bait is now held in place by knot from larger hair loop.

TIP #2 - Simply tie 1 or more overhand knots in the hair to hold your baits in place. (Note that tying knots in the hair will shorten it – also useful if you want to use a smaller or chopped-down bait and the hair is too long).

Tie a knot in the hair.
