oh, and after u finish the looping bits in 5, hold both ends of the leader and braid tight, lube again, and pull completely taught.

oh and i should mention, its far easier leaving ur leader roleld up on its 'spool', makes it easier to go through (under and over) the loops.

gee, thanks, you obviously have more time on your hands than mine ;)

I decided I had better "man up" after the shit I was copping for not being able to tie a bimni (Yes, thats you Tim and Hlokk). I've now tied a few in 50lb braid mind, nice and easy, so I'm going to try your knot here!
