    Just tried it with some 6lb Fluorocarbon on a fair mayfly size hook eye and it seems very sound.Really neat knot too.I did try this knot recently from a Magazine step by step but could not master it but from this clip it worked fine

    With diminishing close up eyesight, I'm all for simple knots.
    Thanks for the post, I'll be trying this one.
