I have gotten along so far without the Bimini, it is just that I would like to be able to tie it. Over the years my knots have hold much better than they use to, when I used the blood knot, and the improved clinch knot. I have had line failure before my leaders have broken down. Who is going to teach me the Bimini ??
I do have quite a few of the major books on Saltwater Flyfishing.
