Default Re: Tippet knots

I have the same view as Cletus, the only knot I use is the triple Surgeons knot to tie the tippet to the leader, and virtually all the time I'm using fluoro tippet, mostly 3x-5x and have very good results. About the only time I have a failure is when I'm snagged up on something submerged and have to reef it free, but for fish it works great. I don't tie my leaders, if I was tying blood knots all the way down the leader, I would think I would get pretty fast at it so maybe I would change my mind and also use a blood knot on the tippet connection.
