Q- fly to tippet knot?
Hello everyone, just a quick question.
I have been using the Pitzen Knot a lot lately and it works great, easy to tie as well. I recently picked up a magazine issue that illustrated a knot they called the "Fisherman's Knot" which was unlike any other version of a fisherman's knot I have ever seen before. It did look like a Pitzen Knot, but instead of winded the tag end around the standing part and the loop, they simply wound the loop around the standing part of the line and then passed the tag through the end of the loop.
Is there a significant difference there? It seems that winding the loop this way may even be a little easier than pinching the end of the loop to the standing line and winding around the fly. But if it's weaker, then there's no advantage.
Everyone must believe in something, I believe I'll go canoeing. -HDT
Flyfishing is a drug. It's addictive, it can be expensive, not many others will understand it, it is possible to get others hooked, and everyone has a favorite place to get their fix, but there's no hangover in the morning (from the fishing at least).
