    Default Knot for thin tippet on thick gauge hooks

    Do any of you find this to be a problem.
    You just find the missing fly without explanation why it went missing?
    Or as you put load onto the fish pop off.
    What knots you find to be the best for above problem.
    Just one more cast.......... make it count ...........
