Cool. That's a deal.
Bimini knots are not that hard. Like any knots, you've got to practice.
lol... It must be something about the water on the West coast! Essentially all of the serious fishermen I know in the NorthEast, hate to deal with a Bimini. All the folks who think they are easy are on the West coast. Coincidence? I don't think so
Anyway, for me it was a good motivator to move to hollow core spectra. I can splice an eye splice in HC faster than most people can tie a Bimini (not to mention an hour faster than me tying one!), and it's smaller and just as strong (if not stronger).
