Hi Rover,

The Blood Knot is the best choice but it is hard to tie on the stream. The Double Surgeon knot is much easier to tie but it is a bit more bulky. My favorite method is to take a new tapered leader and cut off all but about six inches of the tippet. I tie a small Perfection Loop in the leader. To add tippet I just take some tippet and tie a small Perfection Loop in one end and loop the two loops together. Now it is simple to add more tippet as I need it.

Frank
