For about 3 or 4 years I've been using the polomar knot for practically all my fishing knots, and must say my line never breaks at the knot. I read somewhere that this is the toughest knot there is, so I tried it and got hooked on it. I can tie it in the dark, or with cold fingers and so on. What knots do y'all use. If someone wants to know how to tie this knot I can show you, but it's probably already on here somewhere. Sometimes, if I need a breakaway line for my weight, like fishing rip rap, I will tie the weight on with an albright knot, but other than that, it's palomar all the way.
