One of the most crucial aspects of fishing is tying the right knot. This rings true especially on the tournament scene when money and angler of the year qualification points are on the line. One failed knot can lead to short-term and long-term disaster. Make sure you practice your fishing knot tying and always wet your line before synching it down. Test your knot strength at home so you know where the breaking point is at. You can also purchase knot tying tools to help synch the knot down by having more leverage. Find the knot that works best for you and make sure you continue to practice tying it and perfecting it. This will increase your overall success rate on the water.
