I'm curios to know what everyone else uses when it comes to fishing knots. For me it is usually a trilene knot. It is the easiest one I know and the only one beside the more difficult fly fishing knots.
Depends on what I'm tying on. I usually use the FishNFool knot or the palomar. I know those like the back of my hand. And since I've learned the fishnfool knot, I haven't lost anything due to a broken or undone knot.
If you keep practicing the fish n fool knot will be easier even in cold conditions. Its just a confidence thing as it took me awhile to commit to the fish n fool thinking I could tie others faster, well know its a no brainer, fish n fool is much faster and easier to tie!
