ALBRIGHT KNOT QUESTION
The previous "knot" question discussed many great knots. Now I have a question concerning the Albright knots. I've tied a variation of the Albright for many, many years with absolutely no slippage, no breaks, no problems. Simple to tie. Instead of making a "U" in the leader material, close it and form an "0". Now, when wrapping the leader with the line there are three strands of leader material instead of just two. All else is the same. This works for me with Nanofil line and fluorocarbon leader for inshore, PowerPro line and heavy fluorocarbon for offshore. Is there a name for this knot? Anyone else doing this? Easy to tie and strong. Thanks.
SO WHEN IS THIS "OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER" SUPPOSED TO KICK IN?
