Re: Ever get one of those knots.....
I only get those when I'm in the middle of a bunch of actively feeding fish, my hands are freezing, my fingers are numb, and they're not taking anything larger than #24. Guaranteed. Seriously..I almost always fish dry/dropper; when I miss a strike and I know the flies are going to end up in the tree(s) behind me, so try to pull everything back quickly..... Just cut it loose and move on. Or there's what I call the lazy cast...same result.
