    What about wind knots? They seem to happen to me every time I fish so it must be essential right?

    Wow, I used to know how to tie a perfection loop, but this diagram of it is so bad it’s caused me to forget.

    I use exactly none of those knots, nor have I in 45 years of flyfishing.

    Surgeons knot and a double Davy wrap it up for me. 45 yrs worth.

    I’ve stopped using the no-slip loop because over the years I kept snapping the line with fish on occasions that I shouldn’t have way too often. Never had a problem with tippets snapping since.

    Non slip loop for hanging chironomids. A real difference maker.

    No slip and perfection loops are a couple of my favs. It takes longer to get down, but a blood knot is immensely superior to a surgeon’s knot. It’s stronger and the tag is at a 90 degree angle which makes it ideal for adding a dropper or weight.

    However, I highly value the surgeon’s knot for heavy mono and backing. Great for mono running line when Spey/Skagit casting, and I I use it for backing to for loop to loop connections with my line to enable quick changes.
