  1. I'm thinking about switching to Tactical Anglers clips. Plenty of knockoffs on Jeff's Hard Labor Emporium (amazon) but I'm going with the name brand ones. I should mention that I'm a baby. This is only my second season fishing "seriously." Can't wait for the 15th! (more like the middle of may, amirite) I used to tie improved clinch. I kept hearing that affects action. so I go with the loop knot, but then I encountered problems when it came to tie a new lure onto the rig. It really sucks having to palomar a swivel, leader, and lure in a stiff wind. Don't even get me started on braid's audacity to end up wrapped around flouro or mono. So, I heard about these clips, and thought oh great an awesome way to quickly change! Then paranoia set in. Will the fish see the clip and not bite? Will it bend out? Does it affect knots? Etc. I'd like to hear some experiences before I go spending my janitor's salary on some fancy clips.
  2. Show your best/worst terminal failure. Let's see how that one big fish owned you and what it left you with. Provide a short story and if possible a picture included. Will also be interesting to see what brands fail more than others. Ex: hooks, split rings, swivels. Here's mine. This is a mustad 34185 8/0 jig hook bent out by a very big fish. Fish ate it me at my feet (thought I was stuck in rocks). Gave two sharp rod snaps and it took off with no turning back. Tried to set the hook couple more times and it ran faster, even with a tight drag. It rounded the bolder point I was on and spit the jig before I could catch up with it. left me with a bentout hook and seaweed on my leader for extra insult.
