    Well, it's no problem for me - been using it for over 40 years. Never fails me. When you've been using it for 40 years, you do it with your eyes shut in 2 seconds.

    I made a point of saying it's what works for me. Maybe not for everyone, though...

    I'm still using the Penny knot to attach all my flies and tippet rings.
    No problems in hundreds of outings using Maxima or Gigafish Ultra.
    It works for me because it's quick and easy, even with my fingers and thumbs and when cold and wet. Still need to check every time it's tied as with any other knot. I find three turns are best.

    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.
