Knots for wire. Most regular tippet knots work with wire but can be more difficult to tie - here are two that will work and are are easy to tie

This blood knot "trick" came up again on Gink and Gasoline's instagram feed...



I've tried to imitate this method but have failed. Might be time to give it another go.

I usually tie several every day I go fishing... but he has done millions...

School's still out on that knot. After watching this I'm not sure some failures weren't because of the tag end being under the hook eye?

Video: How to Make Your Own Tippet-Spool Tenders



Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions, has a special treat for us this week. Instead of walking us through a fly pattern, he offers step-by-step instructions for making elastic tenders that will control any material that comes on a spool—tippet material, monofilament or fluorocarbon, or even tying materials. For less than $10, you can make a bunch of these things and gain control over unruly materials.

DIY Spool Tenders
          1. 1/4-inch Soft Stretch Elastic braid.
          2. Clear plastic tubing, 3/16 outside diameter and 1/8 inside diameter.
          3. 1/4-inch heat-shrink tubing.
          Tools: Scissors, ruler, bodkin, candle, hot-glue gun, xtra-fine Sharpie.

I'm going to give it a go - but the spools I need it for are the very narrow TroutHunters they come with just double rubber bands and they tend to break
