Do you love big bluegill?
i use this knot 100% of my fishing needs now... which includes
very, very easy to tie!
My new knot. Time to start practicing tying it. Thanks.
thanks Gary ... i was very impressed with its versatility and strength.
2016015-When ice fishing the other day we were experiencing ice buildup in our guides in the very extreme weather. As i pulled the 2# test line thru the tip the line broke trying to free from the frozen guides. Usually i tie a Palomar knot to the snap or bait. My hands were so cold i was unable to tie the knot to the bait because the knot is just a tougher knot to tie. So i used the Uni knot in its place. Because i use super lines they slip thru most knots readily. The Palomar held strongly and has been my knot of choice for attachment for ice fishing. Now I use one or the other. Ice fishing I definitely will use the UNI exclusively.
your welcome Gary...can you describe your Ultra light rig?
20160116- I wanted to share another application for this knot
I was deep jig fishing for crappies casting a 1/32 oz jig a country mile with my newly spooled 2# Nanofil... near the end of the cast a wind knot developed and I started reeling in carefully so the knot would not tighten up. A decent crappie hit the jig and as a consequence the knot tightened. I was not able to undo the knot and the line had to be cut. Instead of disposing of that long length of expensive line I tied the two ends of the line together with a Double UNI and was very satisfied with the repair.
