In case you are not aware of an easy way of tying a surgeon's knot, using your forceps, I made a video and thought that I would share.

Didn't watch the video, I'm sure it's very informative. However the surgeon knot is the easiest knot in the world to tie, it's literally two overhand knots. Not sure why you'd want to complicate the process by adding forcepts to the equation.

pro-tip: Wet the lines with saliva when tying it so they stick together.

un-pro tip - always wet a knot. if you don't the friction caused by tightening it burns the line and weakens it.....

I just watched it. That's pretty neat Gene.

Useful for gloved hands in winter.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Gene. Geebee, I think he was saying wet the leader before you create the loop so they stay together and not separate while passing the tag ends through.

Yes. Why would I watch a 45 second video for a knot that takes 3 seconds to tie? Seems horribly ineffecient.

And to the other poster, you are correct, wet the line before making the loop to make it stick together.

Not everyone has been FF'ing for a long time.
it's just another way to accomplish tying a necessary knot.
Thanks for posting the video.

Nice. After capturing the ends, quick dip in the stream to wet the lines?

Jason, why are you so argumentative? You remind me of one of the guys I work with, he would argue with Christ. This fellow just posted something that he thought might help others, nothing more.
