For years knot strength has been the reason that most fishermen lose fish. It’s not the hook, not the line, not other terminal tackle, it’s the knot. Trilene has spent considerable research money and time developing the Trilene knot. Under electron microscope this knot seems to deliver stress more evenly than any other fishing knot.
