I am a guy who just fishes for the fun of the sport. I enjoy the quiet of the outdoors, the sound of the water rolling up on the shore, the sway of the boat in the waves. All this enjoyment comes to a hauling end when you're reeling in a fish with a good fight and SNAP!!! there goes your line and your favourite fishing lure. (If only you took the time to make a couple more loops in your knot).
Hey, I've been there. When I first started fishing I was so excited to get my line in the water I would tie my knot as fast as I could and lose my first fish every time, and we all know the one you lost was the biggest one of the day. Here is a link for an improved clinch knot. It is easy and secure.
