I've been practicing, Mel, using IGFA 20# and 80# Orvis Mirage fluorocarbon leader material. The blood knot connection looks very neat, I tested the leader using a spring scale. It broke in the straight 20# leader a half inch below the bimini twist knot at 18 pounds. It looks like I'm doing a better job on the blood knot than I am on the bimini twist knot. Thanks for your help.
