Knots

I've been fishing for almost 30 years (EEEK!) and one thing that still fascinates me and which I still try to improve is KNOTS.

I've been using the Eugene Bend knot for a few years and I'm very happy with the strength. But when I fish 5X at Sterkies I find it puts curls in the tippet, even on fluorocarbon. So I'm always on the lookout for new and better knots.

Midcurrent published this article today. Have a read, it is thought provoking.

  1. My favorite knot is the Uni Knot, but as the article says, there is no single knot that works for every application. To learn how to tie 28 different knots, check out the site BestFishingKnots.com.
