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.

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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
