This taught me two things, among many others that I learned as the years went by. One should frequently check the leader for wind-knots if there is even a suspicion that one might be there. If it is, it should be mended immediately, because carelessness frequently costs one the best salmon of the day. Also, under average wet-fly conditions, I have become very partial to a floating line with a sinking tip.
