    Re: Knots

    I use a reverse clinch knot. for all my flies. and I use the surgeons knot for tippets.

    I like the reverse clinch because the tag end is opposite to the eye of the hook. In a traditional clinch and improved clinch knot the tag is always next to the eye of the hook the tag is very small and can cause failure of the knot . The reverse clinch eliminates the small tag end that can unravel. I have never had one slip and it is very simple to tie.

    I like the surgeons knot because of its simplicity.

    I use an improved clinch knot mostly, but I will use an uni knot on nymphs and streamers...it has a slip loop so harder strikes are protected a bit on light tippet....it also lets the fly swing on the loop a bit.

    Be careful using that duncans/uni loop LU. Fluorocarbon bites into itself and a sliding knot like that will and has cut through, save it for mono and use a surgeons or rapala knot for loops in floro.

    Davy for flies less than size 12. Clinch for larger, tippet rings and barrel swivels.

    Triple surgeons for tag ends.

    7 days without fishing, makes one weak.
