here’s a really good knot to have in your repertoire. i found this on Jason Borger’s blog Fish, Flies and Water years ago and being a big fan of the Uni-Knot for just about everything i was immediately attracted to this one. Gary Borger’s twist to this knot is actually a twist ! be sure to pay special attention to that part while viewing the video as it’s what makes this knot nice and clean, without unwanted lumps and bumps !
just as Jason mentions, it’s easy, quick, clean, simple to tie, even in low-light situations and very strong. i’ve had no failures yet.
