Default Re: Bimini knot

I can only really weigh in on this from a spinning perspective, and I don't know how similar tarpon leaders for fly fishing are compared to those on spinning and baitcasting outfits, but in the latter the bimini twist is typically more desirable than the alternative spider hitch. The spider hitch might be cool looking and easier to tie but it doesn't test nearly as well as the bimini.
