Just thought of something...

this would make an excellent joint between a steel leader (which should handle a double overhand knot pretty well) and the mono portion of the leader for toothy critters like blues, spanish, cuda, etc.

I use a surgeon's knot now, and actually it's probably the better of the two for simplicity and it already has phenomenal strength.

JF, has anyone thought of using a surgeon's knot for backing to mono? Simple to tie and near 100% rating.
