Default Re: Tippet knots

I use a triple surgeons knot and cheap fc to build my leaders. I never pull hard, instead push the knot into position with your fingers to eliminate friction heat and then tighten hard. Test hard and trim tags. I treat an fc knot the same at the hook, with loving care, lol. I like to spit on them too but usually my fingers are wet enough.
