knots

I have difficulty tying a blood knot to my leader and tippet is there an easier knot to tie. My fingers and eyesight aren't what they use to be.

Re: knots

if you can't do the blood then the next best is the surgeon's. use the triple wrap.

Re: knots

Double or triple surgeons works pretty well. I am getting better at tying the blood knot but agree it can be tough. I never used a blood knot too but would be lost without my nail knot tool for line to leader connections
