Re: knots for thin tippet
The knot Kelly posted is a really good knot for you to get familiar with. It's ideal when rigging the trailing hook on your tube flies and works very well when tying on shanks. I started to use that knot on streamers, tube and shanks last year and it has proven to hold up very well for me plus it helps with the movement or action as noted in Kelly's link.
Good stuff Kelly!
