Default Re: Bimini Twist: Backing To Fly Line

The twists are too close together on that bimini and will reduce the strength of the knot. Only the last 4 or 5 re-twists just before the loop should be close together. Do a few of each then break them and you'll find the tightly twisted ones will break right where the single line enters the knot Edit: if using mono or fluoro.
