    So the other day I lost a monster brown when my knot failed and he took my streamer in a mad dash. He would've been my biggest fish of the year by far. Just felt like sharing. Thanks for listening!

          At least you had the excitement for a while. With salmon and trout, it is most important to test your knots. Monofilament will crack easily reducing the breaking weight to a pound or less on any weight line. Fish like bass that swim at 6 mph don't usually show that to us but trout that can swim at up to 20 mph sure will.

          While you are at it, I'd suggest sharpening your hoods for trout too so that the hook penetrates into jaw bone as much as possible. They have very tender skin and mouth tissue. Therefore hooks come loose much easier than with fish like bass, northerns, walleyes, etc. Best of luck to you... keep trying... you obviously have the right bait/lure and presentation... go get 'em!

            Been there, done that.

            Suggest a book on knots and some practice time in from of the TV.
