Very good point Jackster. As much as it P's me off to see garbage in the woods (especially of the aluminium and plastic kind) I agree with that.

The Orvis Knot is one I didn't know existed and may now become a standard for me.
As for attaching the tippet to the leader, normally I use a Double Surgeon's Knot, but see there's an Orvis for that purpose for that too. Any thoughts on either knot for leader to tippet?
