The tell-tale sign of the line ending in a pigtail will always wrench at your gut, knowing it was your fishing knot that failed. I’ve assembled a list of the top 5 fishing knots all kayak anglers should learn to tie.

  • Has Spring Fishing Decided To Show Up?

    We have all become accustomed lately to reports that talk about strong winds, muddy water, and few or no fish. There have been exceptions, but this generally seems to be the consensus, even on a national level.
