He's got a point though, if you don't know your knots then practice them. Over and over and over. Tie one then test it, cut it and redo until you can do it with your eyes closed.Some of his videos are funny. He's just being a ____ in that one...
Gist of the video: I can tie a knot, some people can't, wow! Maybe make an instructional video or else just keep it funny because that video was stupid.
Thats what I did... I tied the alberto knot so many times I can do it in my sleep now.He's got a point though, if you don't know your knots then practice them. Over and over and over. Tie one then test it, cut it and redo until you can do it with your eyes closed.
What do you consider a long leader? I only bass fish... looks like you do a lot of salt water. But my leaders are never more than 24 inches.It shouldn't hurt, only thing I would be worried about is getting bit off there from the slight bubble trail it could make. I like to use a long leader so I learned to tie a small knot for the braid to mono connection. When the bite is hot it is quicker to cut a few inches or a foot off and retie than to have to make up a new leader.
I agree. Overall the flurocarbon is a massive scam. It does two things better than mono/co-polymer, it sinks and it is less visible (not invisible as they would have you belive). There are many things it does worse. There is an persistent myth that it doesn't stretch (it does)."All the pros use now is straight flouro for 90% of their applications"
No offense, but that sounds like a statement from a sucker. If a company gave me tons of their brand flouro sure id use it all the time too. Don't let those pros get into your head too deep.
