Default Re: Favorite "loop" knot?

nedun, I take it that this is used for Marlin,Sails or Tarpon. If so I would not want the slip knot(Duncan) to move as it will cause friction thus weaken the line.A Bimini at the leader to Tippet as well as a Bimini to Fly line for a loop to loop connection.But all of these connections may make for alot of bulk that may not be needed. At the Fly connection a smaller strong knot such as a Offshore Swivel Knot or Polomar. Just my Nickles worth. I have never Fly Fished for any of the above fish,Yet. WJC has more experience with the larger fish.
For inshore/Flats fishing I use Lefty's no slip just keep the loop as small as possible.
