Hi Everyone, Well it is finally time for me to start practicing FLY to TIPPET knots! I practice tying the blood knot every day (yes I needed to learn it) and have scraps of mono laying all over the house! I went fishing last week and saw TONS of knots tied to attach a fly to tippet and was overwhelmed with all of the different techniques and knots folks tied. Many didn't know the names of them but just "I tie them because they work"...... When I was fishing over the years I got really good at tying the Palomar knot. Works very well and I have never had a fish "leave me" because of this knot. What I am confused about is NO ONE tied it at all when I was fishing last week. Granted the Loop has to be passed through the eye and on tiny hooks it might be next to impossible but I will try unless there is another solution. So......can you tell me for trout fishing, just what knot do you like and why? I need to practice to make it second nature on the river/stream..... Thanks! Mike
