FISHING INFORMATION AND TACKLE TIPS FOR SALMON FISHING.
Hi Paul. Thanks for your knot posts. I remember when I first started fishing I used to tie a knot (don't know the name) which used to pull apart under the weight of a big fish! I then saw a picture of it in a book (pre internet days) which tucked the end of the line under the last loop. It worked a treat since then and I landed many big fish. Actually once I was fishing and hooked a shovelnosed shark (in Australia) and he was a few feet from the shore when the first type of knot I described slipped. We had a long fight and the fish was tired so I ran into the water to grab it. I missed the fish but managed to grab the trace and was able to pull the fish in.Ah, the memories. :-)
