Default Help with tying knots

Now that I知 fishing offshore, I知 using heavier line. When I get into 30 pounds or heavier line, monofilament or fluorocarbon, I am sometimes having problems with the knots slipping. A big fish might get off and what痴 left is a squiggly end of fluorocarbon, The hook has been taken off, not broken off. I am trying to pull the knot tight with pliers and leaving more tag end....1/4 inch or more? I usually tie an improved clinch knot.

Default knot did not stay a knot

if it has the squirrelly tail the knot slipped. if it was tied properly it would not slip no matter the weight on the other end. get a set of crimpers or tie the knot in a different manner. snelling can help if it holds. try it with a larger line or even a rope to practice the knot and become familiar with it. my first knots were disasters. they do not slip anymore. best of luck

Nothing wrong with an improved clinch in mono. If it's tied properly, lubed and pulled down it should never slip. The uni is excellent in any line, but especially braid.

Like said above. Snelling a circle hook is optimum..
If you have a problem Snelling then I recommend you learn the uniknot
It is very versatile. You can use a double uni to tie a leader directly to your main line.. an Albright goes through the guides better but a double uni works..
I used to have a book that had many many knots in it. Can稚 remember the name. That was 25 yrs ago.

Look at Netknots.com, and animatedknots.com I personally use a san diego jam knot and it does not fail.
