Need knot help

12 posts in this topic

I seem to be having a tough time with my knots. What are some of your favorites. My worst trouble is tieing "power pro"to "vanish". The blood knot that i'm tieing has failed often. It may not be the knot.The"tier" may need help. Thanks in advance fellows....

Uni for sure. Most fly fishing stores have little tools that make that knot pretty easy to tie as well.

The surgeon’s knot is another good one to learn.

Double Uni or Back to Back Uni (Same knot) works pretty slick for tying a braid to a mono.

I don't tie enough in a year to get it right without looking at the instructions in the package of Power Pro, but I get it.

Just make sure to moisten the knots before cinching them down, that would go for any knot really.

The blood knot is more for line of the same diameter. Back to back uni is good for different and similiar line types.

Some other things that may be a problem is the test of the leader material when attached to superlines. A light leader material on a heavy superline will break pretty easily on hooksets if the drag is not set correctly since it absorbs most the shock. Also when tying knots with floro its best to wet/spit on the line before cinchng it up.

definatly the double uni. It is a very easy not. ( coming from a person who can tie it up to dozens of times a day at work)

by ar the best way, unles you are using a short leader of mono, then it might be best to use a ball bearing swivel to cut down 0n line twist.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
