Default Re: knots in tippet

Jack,

Usually this happens when you have a fairly fine tippet and a fly that has large wings or something else about the construction that makes it (the fly) spin on the end of the leader like a propeller. If they are not actual knots but just twisted leader tippets change either to a larger tippet or to a smaller more wind resistant fly.
