SPYKER'S LEADER KNOT

0.45 isn't really a leader and one could just as well connect with a blood knot.

The Albright should be so small it wouldn't really knock a guide hard enough to affect distance.

This Spyker knot will be strong enough and I would recommend at least a 0.55 or 0.60mm as a leader

I get all the steps, but the very first step in post #1 I do not. Can someone please post a step by step guide for tying the ''slip noose'' knot as step 1 for this spyker knot? Or a link please. My google skills is lacking. Where is that ashamed emoticon when you need it.

It's not tying a Slip noose knot you simply fold the loop over itself forming a noose that tightens over the leader

Kyk bietjie hier hoe Schalk die loop maak
