i'm going to have a couple of small prizes during the trip.  one is going to a knot competition, using my 40# big game to to a swivel. the four guys with the highest score will be in a tug of war competition for a small reel.  the second is going to be a competition with the same format, except we will be testing your mono to spectra connection.  the price will be something, um, larger.

start practicing those knots.  for the competition, the mono we will use will be from a spool of 40# biggame that i have.  the spectra will be something, not sure what just yet.  i will provide mono, spectra, and the scale.

if you guys want to practice, use 40# big game and a good quality 65# pound solid spectra.  it will be worth the effort.

What happens if the line breaks, but not at the knot?  That is what happened with the best knots at the SSS on the Trilene knot machine.

When you start to tighten them up it's critical to make sure they are right, if not they are useless.
