What knot do you recommend for tying tippet to tippet ring ? cheers F1.
It depends whether your using nylon or flurocarbon. If nylon then blood knot (I personally tuck it). If flurocarbon then I use a grinner and under no circumstances use a blood knot with fluro. I suspect many of the reported fluro tales of woe on here are caused by the use of blood knots with it.

I use an untucked blood knot for both fluoro and nylon. Tie them carefully and test them carefully. I've never had one fail but I do when I used to tuck them, which is why I don't now!

Im the same, i found a tucked half blood didnt pull up as neatly or consistently. Only change i make when using fluro is to add an extra turn or 2 but im not sure it really makes any odds.

Funny that, I use almost extensively Seaguar or other fluro's these days, my std. knot for everything is a twice through whatever, 5 turns 1/2 blood knot, back through the double bit, loads of saliva and nice steady draw down.I make a habit of leaving a tag end of maybe 1/4" to 1/2" -unless I'm sealing the knot with Zap a Gap, and I've never had a minutes bother like that!. Possibly it's down to the way I subconsciously tie the knot, dunno?, but no probs to report at all with either the viability or longevity of the knot!.

I prefer the clinch knot for general fishing but use the half Davey when chalk stream fishing

Uni knot. Make sure not to have too many turns with higher poundage nylon/fluoro, wet it and make sure it beds properly. If you are not happy, tye it again.
