Hi all

Yes Im back with another question

I have seen on some footage people tying a knot on there Lilian but have read not to do this

So what is the correct procedure should there be a knot there or not ?

If using strictly Level Lines it isn't necessarily needed but if using Traditional Lines with a girth hitch you would need it.

I've just used it because this is what was already on two of the rods. But never really thought much of it. It would suck to cast your line, tippet, and fly into a fishes mouth and the fish get tangled up. So I always use it.

I'll be interested in how you like it Ant75.
I really enjoy fishing many ways, Tenkara is my favorite way.
Effective fun and easy on the joints.
