Default Re: A better knot

Hi to all,

I was surprised by Kai's photo. I have never considered putting forceps on a zinger but it looks like a good idea the way Kai shows. I have never lost a pair of forceps so I guess my way works too.

I pick up all small flies at the hook bend with forceps so the fly is in line with the forceps. I grasp the forceps by the barrel and spin it between my thumb and fingers and then finish the improved clinch knot. I like this method better than tying real small flies with the forceps completely.

Frank
