Default Re: Why did my tippet ruin my day?

I switched from the clinch to the Orvis knot about 19 years ago. Simple to tie and it does not waste tippet.

The double clinch is a stronger knot BUT it requires that you take the tippet through the hook eye twice and after the wraps, take it back through those two loops. It's way too fussy a knot.
