Thumbs up Some other knots

This site is a good one to. I use a slightly modified version of the San Diego Jam, which is an excellent knot for heavier lines/Big fish. Here is the link:

Mike Bucca (aka Triton Mike) showed me a cool knot for Fluorocarbon but I forgot how to tie it...

Default Nice to remind the oldsters

of the new sources of knowledge on their computers. Bookmarked a couple.

Reminds me I've used the improved clinch knot for years fishing and hunting. In hunting I apply the improved clinch knot to the rope pulling up the bow or rifle to the tree stand.

Default The modern way of knowing knots

The improved clinch knot might have save a few fish over the decades, but it sure saved my compound bows and rifles, that I lifted by rope, up to the tree stand. If there is a better knot, I need no know it.

I have never really tied an "official" fish knot. Plenty of Boy Scout knots! Can't say I have had any slippers but after looking at these sites, I'll get some 20lb out and practice some. I especially liked the YouTube instructional video.

If you want on the go knot instruction, Free app called "Fishing Knots"

It is pretty good with pics and instructions. With all other things, it takes practice to learn them.

I teach my son with the thin, piping shoe strings (you see on Nike's)

Once he gets the concept, he'll go to real line.

I'm not good at tying a fluorocarbon leader on a braid line , so I got me a Denison knot tool from Dakota Angler for $10 , not I'm a pro at tying tight knots . It's simple and could be made at home but for $10 you can't beat it .

Default Two great knots

Any kind of Internet search for fishing knots will give you some good sites to learn knot tieing. My two favorites are1)the Kreh Loop for tieing lures or to allow a free floating minnow more freedom to move on the hook. It is MUCH easier to tie than the Rapala and the tag is downstream, so it doesn't pick up any debris like the Rapala. (2) the Trilene knot instead of the improved clinch for hooks or swivels. It is stronger and, I think, easier to tie also. If you know those two knots, you can do almost anything.
PS: I don't know how the emoji got on the post, but I couldn't get rid of it. Some defect in the website!
