RE:Follow the Leader

Ray --- I agree that tying any Knot too quickly or under the pressure of the moment sometimes leads to failure. Since I switched to tying a double surgeons loop for tippits my knot failures here have vanished. It is basically a very easy knot to produce.
My knot failures when the do happen come at the tippit fly connection where i have been using the trilene which is again an easy,quick knot to tie. Most failures are in salt water with heavy tippits as apposed to fresh with light material
