Thats a pretty good tip right there. Salivary amylase (Saliva) is a digestive enzyme. Im sure it really doesnt matter much as the knot gets washed with water quickly, but hey the knot loses breaking strength at the molecular level by bending so why Knot use the chapstik. Its a huge advantage being confident with your knots IMO.

I don't like to use saliva just for that reason you mentioned. I will sometimes sit down and tie 10, 20 or more leaders of all differnet hooks and configurations. Heck with a high low rig there's 4 knots right there.
Many swear by chapstick for the slim beauty and it makes the Dropper Loop a breeze. These leaders may sit for a week, month or more. With the chapstick the knots slip tight much easier as pulling that loop tight on a palomar with 60# mono/fluoro is a pain is the arse. This tip came from a famous fly maker, many also use it instead of dubbing wax. Just search chapstick and knot tying or even fly tying and you will find many posts.

Oh and throw some of that tounge action my way

Glad to hear it StriperHyper

I will be ordering the Icers in the very near future. When I saw them a few months ago I thought they should work and was going to order then. I then found out you had bought some so I figured I would wait to see how they worked for you.

I normally use pp for most casting situations as it casts very well. I have used fireline for 3 years now for shore bound tog fishing and its by far the best line for rough terrain. I have had two rods side by side one with 30 fireline and the other with 30 power pro the one with pp would break like dental floss when a fish went for rocks. The one with fireline would hold up and i could actually feel the line dragging across mussle covered rocks in the inlets i fish. The only recomendation is if you plan a trip to go break in the line first fireline is very very stiff but after couple hundred casts is good.
