If there is one thing that can ruin a great fishing trip it is getting that big one right up to the edge and then watching it swim away. The best way to avoid that kind of dissapointment is to make sure that all of your equipment is in top form. One often overlooked aspect is the line and terminal tackle connections. Having the knots tied perfectly will decrease the amount of strength loss at each point. I watched a good video demonstrating three of the most commonly used fishing knots and I thought I would share it with you today.
