Default Bloodknotish....

But stronger in my opinion.

Try it.

This can also be done to repair a wind knot in your line, just take the wind knotted portion and use it in place of the overhand knot in the video

Love it! I nearly go nuts when I have to tie a bloodknot and my dear wife drifts us past the good fishing spots while I'm frantically trying to get that consarned knot tied and cinched!This may be a life saver.

Wow. I love that. Just seems like it would be more likely to slip with both tags coming out the same side, particularly with smaller diameter tippet. As my fingers and eyes get older, I am reverting to the simplest knots I can tie.

I tied a loop of 10lb test together with a blood knot and this knot on the other side. Equally spaced them out and pulled apart with my fingers. Three out of three times the bloodknot gave out first and this knot held. My fingers were sore so I stopped my highly scientific test.

that's pretty cool... I saw a .gif on Instagram a few weeks ago about another blood knot alternative. I tried to find it and actually found this on Gink and Gasoline's site - Pretty cool little trick here as well! http://www.ginkandgasoline.com/fly-f...st-blood-knot/

I'll keep hunting for the other knot I saw and post it when I do...

Default Found it...

Here is the knot that Lefty Kreh claims as 100% knot strength...

Looking forward to giving it a go on some stripers next week!

Isn't that "Lefty Kreh" knot simply a surgeon's knot?

It is pretty similar to a surgeons knot, but the loop is spun 3 times after you form your initial loop.

After researching a little more, I've seen it is also called a Seaguar Knot.
