Dumb question...How did a yellow line and a clear line produce a "blue" knot?I use 12 lb Suffix Tritanium on my bait rods and if I'm only throwing 2 ounces and a river rig just tie a Bimini twist for a loop to hook a cast lock swivel.
For my long rods I don't use anything less than 17 lb Tri and I tie a Bimini to make a loop and then a Yucatan to tie the 50-60 lb shock.
I was using a surgeons loop, figure 8 knot, and or a spider hitch to make the loop knot but they are not half as strong as a Bimini twist.
I learned how to do it watching Tater when we went fishing with DD he made it look easy and after a hundred or so times it gets pretty easy.
This is what a Yucatan knot should look like. This is 17 lb Tritanium and 50 lb HighSeas Quatro.

That is because Hi Seas Quatro is camouflage, it is red blue and green and almost clear. I suppose it is somewhere between the blue and clear part.Dumb question...How did a yellow line and a clear line produce a "blue" knot?
