I would suggest using the Davy Knot instead of the clinch knot. Since I stared using the Davy Knot, i have not lost a fish because of it.
Google Davy Knot. It is easy to tie and strong too.


Its a very good knot. I fished it for awhile till I started losing fish cause of it. Since then I used an improved clinch for just about everything. I used the ICK before the davy. Got turned on to the davy cause its ease of tying. It defiantly does not have the knot strength as the ICK. Since i stated going back to the ICK, I have not had a failure. But to each there own. Find what works for you, and thats all that matters.

Also, good quality tippet matter is a must. If you ask me. I use Frogs Hair fluorocarbon. A little pricey but well worth it.

I agree with using the improved clinch knot. With light tippets (4x-7x) it is a must. I've done some experimenting and it seems to me that using 5 twists and some saliva seems to work the best. Pulling the tag end as you tighten the knot helps keep things tight and pretty. If your using 0x-3x, standard clinch works
fine but the above formula still works too.
