    Learn to tie the FJ knot (finger joint). It is near 100 percent knot strength. No matter what terminal knot you then use it will part at the terminal end. I use 10 lb braid and 10 lb floro on all my light and medium gear. I size my tippet too break before the braid. You will drastically shorten the life of the braid if you break it often. I don't fish clear water often and fish around a lot of structure, current, and rip-rap so i like a little heavier line than most. I fish custom rods made from fly rod blanks and light or ultra light rods. If the rod breaks its because I made a mistake. Period. The braid, regardless of test strength, will not cause rod breakage, operator error does. Size your tippet/ leader to break just shy of the actual break strength of the braid. Forget the line test written on the side of the rod. It doesn't mean much.

    Well I do like that knot, but I usually only use that in conjunction with a doubled section of main line by way of a Bimmini twist. Especially with 2# test. lol

    That was interesting. Learned how to tie the bobber stop's you can slide up and down your ling. duh! Should have figured that out long ago and didn't! Only tie the knot on one side and cut off the ends, slide's very well! Don't I feel stupid! :-)
