Hot Knots

Never tie an improved clinch again.

The uni knot is versatile, easy to tie, and strong. Use it to tie on hooks or join two lines together with the double uni knot. Works great for tying dissimilar lines together or a leader to braid. For tying a braid backing to heavier mono or even a leader to braid the Red Phillips knot is faster and smaller.

Limnology 101:  Know your Lake!

Understanding Water Movement in Cayuga Lake

The larger Finger Lakes belong to a group of temperate deepwater lakes that undergo summer stratification and winter isothermal periods.  Limnology is the thorough study of lakes, from the flora and fauna to water movements, lakeshore geology, and pollution.  These pages focus on Cayuga Lake (though it nearly all applies throughout the area), with the basics of water movement and how it relates to popular sport fish.  Topics include stratification, seiche waves, currents, the Coriolis Effect, the truth about "turnovers", and much more!  Understanding how and why water moves will make you a better fisherman.
