Default Re: Bimini Twist: Backing To Fly Line

bimini knots are well-known for high strength, but they're too much work for me.

It's a lot easier to just use an albright or castwell knot for backing >> fly line and be done with it. Like the other guy said, your tippet knot will go first -- there's no reason to waste time trying to go from 85% knot strength up to 100%.
