Can't help myself.
When centerpinning folks use micro swivels to connect tippet to the mainline. Why is it when flyfishing folks insist on tying blood knots or double surgeons? In both cases we are attaching 6-10 lb tippet to 10-12 lb mono. Perhaps I am not seeing the forest for the trees, but I fail to see any difference. Wondering why I couldn't use micro swivels in both applications. Pretty much trying to rationalize not having to learn these new knots but it did get me wondering.
Why swivels with pinning yet knots with flyrods
