Default Home Grown Tackle: Knots.....

So All of us have favorite knots we tie.What are yours??Name your knots tell why you use them.

For me My favorite way to tie a leader is direct.I usually use the back to back uni knot.I've also used the Albright knot but have recently started using the crazy Alberto knot.

I use four knots, and only four knots.

back to back uni knot-when attaching a floro leader to another line

trilene knot-when attaching terminal tackle to mono or floro

palomar knot-attaching terminal tackle to braid

inline snell knot-attaching midline hook to spinner harness

all these knots have proven themselves with me over many years, and have also done very well on 'Knot Wars'.

Uni-Uni for attaching 2 different lines together.

Palomar for terminal tackle.

Inline snell knot for crawler harness hooks.

I haven't had a knot failure since using those knots....except on Berkley Vanish, that stuff was junk!

I buy all my knots pre-tied. I like the Storm knots, but I find that LiveTarget knots are much more lifelike.
