Default Re: Knot - It-Up

I used an improved version of this knot for about 2 seasons and it worked well for me. The improvement consists of winding the tag end of the tippet twice around the tippet when forming the first loop. It doesn't need a stop knot, but I do not clip the tag flush to the knot (I leave about 1/16" of the tag).
The original "Davy" knot has to be tightened down correctly though (or tie a "stop knot). A correctly tightened Davy knot has the tag end sticking out at a 90 degree angle to the tippet.

Hope it helps,
Alex
