Trilene or palomar. Depends on what I am tying on to. If it is big I will use trilene if it is a small I will use the palomar.

If I use mono I use the trilene knot, if I am using fireline I use the knot on the fireline inside packaing.

I prefer these two knots, but when tying on a plain hook I use the snell knot

I use the Uni knot. I've used the trilene knot for years, but I feel the uni knot is stronger.

I have no idea, My grandfather mearly said this is how you tie a lure on and it has worked for me for over 30 years with no problems.

Palomar knot for everything. I have used the Clinch Knot like my father-in-law does, the Palomar is easier for me.

On super braids I use the palomar knot. On mono I use the Improved clinch Knot.

I do find it almost (ha ha) imposable to use the Palomar knot to tie a leader onto a swivel without cutting off the swivel or feeding the rod and reel through the loop of the knot.

the snell, uni, biminy twist, albrite and the nail knot are just few other knot I use.

I use a crawforwd figure 8 knot for mono, and a palomar for braid. And a uni-to-uni for joining sections of leaders. All I've ever needed!

I use a trilene know for mono, palomar for all non-mono. These knots both double up on the eye connection so they are strong. I never "break" at the eye with these knots.

Mostly palomar, but occasionally a Trilene.

I agree, I use a palomar about 98% of the time on everything. Just a tough knot.

Super braids will slip with this knot. If you want to join a Super braid line to a mono or Fluorocarbon leader use two nail knots. Tie the leader over the Super braid and the Super braid over the leader and slide (jam) them together. If you find the nail knot hard to tie, fly fishing shops have a tool for tieing nail knots and they come with a line clipper.

    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
