The Best Fishing Knot?
Check out this video on the Swisher Knot.
I learned this one in the early 80's when famed trout fisherman/educator Doug Swisher visited Minneapolis. I originally cut a video when I started FlyBass.com in 2003. I decided to do an updated version since I couldn't find the video anywhere on YouTube. Google does funny things sometimes (just ask our Presidential candidates...).
I use this know for every terminal connection, be it flies or jigs, or plain hooks. Easy, fast and strong!
