fly fishing knots
You just hook a fish of a lifetime!  It’s running like crazy and then makes an amazing jump, lands in a crazy splash, and starts to spin out more line.  Just at that moment your line goes limp.  F#!-*^k.  You strip back your line to check your fly, only to see a little curly cue on your tippet -...
sharpen your hook
Do you sharpen your hook on a regular basis?   A fish's mouth is hard and tough.  Although steelhead often hit like a freight train, they can also take super subtly.  Just as light as a tip-tap is sometimes all you feel.  Take a look at Tip #1 here for clarification.
