    I just started using this knot and really like the ease of tying especially late in the evening. It ties light tippet without the curl that I sometimes got with the clinch knot.

    First heard about it in Ohio, also about 5 years ago. I don't know how big of a problem it is here, but I remember reading an OH Dept of Ag flyer about invasive species to be on the lookout.
