I am surprised that I am still reading about folk losing fish when the hook slips the knot. An ease way to prevent this is to super glue the knot. Carry a small bottle with you in your bag/boat/vest and remember to glue those new knots.

If the fish breaks the leader then just say ' One up to the fish '. If the fish pulls the hook then it is all your fault and you cannot blame the fish.

I don't remember fish ever pulling a hook unless I tied a bad knot. Super glue? Realy? That's a new one on me. But if it works for you, who am I to question?

id say just learn the right knot. Never had an issue once I learned how to tie the right knots for the right line/hook, etc..

There are a few good books out there with good pictures on knot tieing. I own one or two of them and they are great! They show you good fishing knots, good rope knots, all kinds of good knots to use.

I run 20' of flourocarbon line at the end of my PowerPro line. I use a drop of superglue on the knot because I can get away with a smaller knot and I can glue the tag end alongside of the mainline so the knot will feed through the rod guides and reel levelwind smoothly.

after i tie my knot i grab the hook with one hand and the line with the other and pull until its tight. if its a bad knot it will come undone and if its a good one it will be nice and tight! Tup:
