The Secret To A Good Modified Knot Is To Create FRICTION!

Over the years i found ways to slightly alter my most heavily used knots to make it stronger & more reliable. I've always alternated 2 boats so when i fished back in the day it was mostly catching, not fishing. I still have a 20ft in storage but i really don't need it anymore. I prefer the peace & quiet of fishing from shore.

Today i'm going to show how i modified my Palomar & Uni Knots. For years i've always shown how i modify tying my Palomars but i guess nobody noticed. So i thought i'll show it in detail today. Also how i modified my Uni Knots. I rarely use Uni's but thought i'd include it because it helps to demonstrate my philosophy that if you create more friction using wet line that it doesn't weaken the leader. It'll help to cinch the knots but will also strengthen the weakest point in any fishing leader. The knot.
