You're probably in the air now, but in case you see this, the knot shown is basically a nail knot (with the 17 lb tippet section), but there is also that loop de loop thing in the shock tippet that the tippet passes through first. It'll provide a stronger connection and is less likely to slip than just a nail knot alone. (You don't need to do this with a fly line, since the nail knot buries itself in the coating of the fly line, but the shock tippet is a bit harder and more slippery.)

I see thanks. Is a surgeons knot ok for the 17-60 connection?

The above knot would be better, but if you do the surgeon's do it with doubled 17lb.

Catch anything yet?
