Default Bimini Twist: Backing To Fly Line

Two things: First this is a great web page to learn how to tie the various fishing knots.

Second I like this bimini knot for loop to loop tying backing to fly line because when tied correctly the knot has a angled profile < making it easier for the knot to go thru your guides. Not saying I have ever had a fish do that, but someday when it does happen...I will really want a smooth transition to backing when singing thru the guides.
