      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Nail knot for heavy mono/fluoro

Recommended Posts

Is this what Lee Tauchen showed in one of his Esox articles? I've used a nail knot for fly line/leader connection but can't figure out how you use it for a knot to a swivel. When I do a search I get the standard fly fishing version. Any ideas?

Google "learning how to fish" and go to the HSOforum with that for the domain. No spaces and a dot com. On the left hand side, click on "fishing knots" and then you'll see a number of different knots including the nail knot.

If you can't find it by doing this, shoot me an email and I can send you the link.

I still get the flyfishing/two line nail knot diagram. Maybe I'm all wrong about this nail knot on fluoro leaders but pretty sure you can buy a tool for them(as you can for the flyfishing version) and know the stealth leaders use what they term a nail knot.

Cooter, I didn't look too closely at that site I referred you to. But I just checked it out again and I see where your confusion is now. I've never used a nail knot so I don't have a good answer for you. You're right about the Stealth leaders, they do use a nail knot. I'm pretty sure Lee does as well. So that's probably what you saw. I'm not much more help than that though.

Does anyone know how to tie a nail knot to hook with heavy leader Fluoro? I've spent too much time on google trying to figure this one out. Thanks all...

Dunno on the nail knot. I remember the article, but can't recall the details.

Another good one to try though is the Canoeman's knot. Works well for heavy leader material, and easy to tie.

Is it just a nail knot or a combination between a nail and something else for the nail know to butt up against?
