Today I was out fishing, and every bite and/or hangup I had, the line broke at the knot. Normally, I don't have many problems with my knots--usually a clinch or improved clinch. Today, broke off at the slightest tension--all day.
My question: Is it possible I got a "bad" leader? Or have I all of a sudden lost the abililty to tie a knot that will hold?
Has anyone ever had a leader that gave them problems with knot strength? I am hoping I did not all of a sudden lose the ability to tie a knot that will hold.
