Knot Testing - James' page

Could be interesting to see:

Bimini loop-to-loop
Surgeons loop-to-loop
How about connections using tippet rings: both Blood and Uni-knots?

Cheers

Issue with marketing

Dodgy marketing claims notwithstanding I feel a little balance for the Helios is required here: As I recall, the rods Paul broke were early samples of the first gen. Helios. Clearly a problem there, but not a reason to steer clear of them now. I have owned several H1,and H2's in different weights. I...

Colours as the sun sets

I think the blue thing is about how far down blue light can penetrate the water, and my understanding is that it can depend on the colour of the water. If it's clear water/oceans then blue and green can penetrate the furthest. My copy of "What Fish See" (Kageyama) says "As light passes deeper... lig...

Personal Locator Beacons

When in BC recently the guides had these https://www.wired.com/2014/04/sat-comms/#slide-1, I think they had the InReach ones. They ccould stay in touch with each other via their mobiles even when deep in backcountry.

Seemed to work well.

Cheers.

Drag adjustment

I have a friend who uses the Danielson Control:

Looks really good and he's had some huge Salmon on his. You can fine-tune the drag via pressure on the handle.

Tyger wire replacement

Authanic:

Very flexible and knot-able. Doesn't kink too much and to a certain extent you can pull kinks out. Not quite as bullet-proof as K2K.

I've had a fair few pike on this stuff with no probs.

Tyger wire replacement

Interesting. Not sure the snap-link will make that much difference in landing gently when you're chucking a big popper, and immediately popping it? Although looking at your vid. you are going to need a stronger snap than I use for pike!

Did you get hold of any Authanic wire to try?

Tyger wire replacement

Yep, I use a heavy duty tippet ring to the leader and a snap-link when using it for pike. Don't use the really small snaps as they can straighten under heavy pressure. You could tie direct to the fly but knotting K2K is a pain. The heavy tippet rings from Vision are 20kg. I started using tippet ring...
