Re: What knot do you tie your fly on with?

In case you haven't tried the Pitzen, it's strong, small, easy to tie and telegraphs with a click when it's tied right.
Jackster, that's an interesting knot. I hadn't heard of it before you brought it up, so I just Googled it [link to one of the easier demonstrations: http://www.marinews.com/Pitzen-Knot-347.php]
. Some say it's akin to the Duncan
, but I'm not familiar with either well enough to know. I noticed one reference discouraged its use with so-called "superlines". If that includes fluoro tippit, I'd be interested in your or others' experience with how well the Pitzen Knot
holds in fluoro (same question for the Davy Knot
, discussed below).
BTW, the Poll is "Multiple Choice", so multiple selections can be made (however, I suspect that they all have to be selected initially, at one time).
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .
