    This got me curious. Found a site that purports to "rate" all of the soft lead/tungsten products out there. One man's opinion, but at least it seems to provide a list of all the types a guy could...

    Preston, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you have a substantial damsel population where you fish that calli pattern, because that's what they HAVE to be taking it for. LT Joe even completes...

    I've heard of the knot - most folks tend to tie it with forceps - and its popularity is more associated with its ease and quickness than its strength. The Orvis Tippet Knot (like you I use that one...

    I don't either. Actually, I don't "get" any kind of competitive fishing. Fishing isn't a sport, it's a pastime, a hobby, a diversion. Competing at it lowers a wonderfully relaxing activity to the...

    Go read what Dr Fish wrote. Then read it again.
