    Just wanted to add another obvious tip/mistake...that we all make. Make sure you aren't joining leader to tippet if the size of each is too greatly contrasting. I made this mistake in a hurry and lost a pig because I joined light tippet and a heavy butt section.

    Good point Luke. While a nail knot splice using a knot tool allows .006 difference, I believe most other line connecting knots are recommended at just a .003 difference. I hate getting that tool out when you are in a hurry!
