    Default Knots for autritest

    Hi, I'm 69, getting bad case of autritest in my hands, It's getting hard to tie knots . I went to loop to loop for line to leader and tippet. Now I need a knot for tippet to fly. Suggestions welcomed.

    I have the same hand issues. The Davy knot is the easiest for me to tie on light leaders. If you tighten the tag end of the line at a 90 degree angle from the knot, then clinch it down you won't have any slippage issues.

    For heavier test leaders I'll use the clinch knot.

    I always wet my knots with some saliva before drawing them down.

    Plastic "hackle pliers", a.k.a. plunger style make that knot easy peasy....especially in the winter.
