Fly Fishing General Discussions / Re: Blood knots
« Last post by Alex Argyros on Today at 06:55:05 PM »
I have used blood knots for a long time, and my conservative instincts often kick in and I find myself using one still.  But, I think that the strongest knot to join two pieces of tippet is the Orvis Tippet Knot, and I find myself using it more and more.  It is also the best knot to use when you want to add a dropper tag.

Fly Fishing General Discussions / Blood knots
« Last post by David Bisnett on Today at 11:01:52 AM »
Hey guys,

When tying up my leaders, I find blood knots to be very effective for large diameter material, approx 15-40 lb test for the upper and/ or butt sections but not so much when the diameter drops down below around 15. For the thinner sections Iím using a triple surgeons knot; any thoughts or ideas about a better knot to use or does it sound alright?


Thanks,
David

My clan will all be up there. Team Lunkwa (Ken & I), Team Manderine(my brother Bryan & Smitty), Team Stroud(Colette & Rob), Team Paskall(Randy & Deb) and Team Laugh a lot(Wayne & my son Tyler). And maybe a special guest Tony "Montana" Moore.  ;D

Saturday night after the comp we have a big wind up bbq @ Wayne's on Leighton.

I heard from Melissa at the mine site, they had a "learn to fish" for the kids and were very happy to see some good sized fish being caught.

Friday is an optional practice day for 3 hrs and a donation of $20 to do so. You can also leave your boat there for the next day.

So, who is planning on attending this event?

For those that have never participated at this fundraiser, it's a great introduction to competitive/tournament fly fishing, but most importantly, it's a real fun time, both on and off the water, with a great group of fly fishers and volunteers!

Updated with the medals that were awarded to the individuals and teams at the 2018 Canadian National Fly Fishing Championships, which were held in Wellington Center, Ontario.

Please note that there was an error on the Leader Board that was corrected earlier this afternoon, in order to reflect the correct number of NRPs that were earned at Alberta FFL's Event #3-18 - Spring Lake (FFC# 2018-8). The average NRPs of the top 5 competitors equals 333 points (not 550 points), which now has been used for the point scale for that competition.

Our sincerest apologies for not catching the error sooner.

I think that same fly pattern tied on different hook shapes hold fish different. I'm fishing factory barbless exclusive so I can't compare with debarbed hooks. On topic, keeping a tight line, not playing the fish long time and also not rushing the fish to the net is what I'm doing.
