    Default Blood Knot Video

    Seems to good to be true, every time I see a "easy way to tie a knot" video it works great on the couch and like **** on the stream. Maybe its cause I am dexterity challenged and vision challenged with 6X tippet

    Well for those that haven't seen it

    thats the only way I can tie a blood knot. Don't know what my malfunction is but if I try to tie it "free hand" it only comes out correct about 1 out of 10, lol.

    i tie a lot of double uni knots instead of bloods on the stream because i never remember my chop stick, lol

    I must be doing something wrong...as simply as it was explained/shown it doesn't seem to be working for me. I get to the end step of pinch/pull and it all falls apart! Will have to watch again and go back to square one

    You're not alone, that is why I hate using 6x.

    I had to watch the video several times to realize he is not putting the toothpick into the middle of the X formed by the tag ends.

    Rather, he puts the toothpick in the left side ( the V if you will) of the junction of the leader and the tipper.

    Pinch to the outside of the toothpick and start winding. That will twist both the leader and tippet while creating the spaces to slip the tag ends.

    Love the method, just have to remember to bring a toothpick!

    I need to try that out. It looks really slick.

    Aha! ...and the tag ends pull from the opposite sides...doh!
    (I was pulling them on the same sides as they'd started!)

    Now I'll have to find a spot in my vest for a toothpick-

    A small twig will substitute for that toothpick.
