Maxima Finger

When tying knots, sometimes 20 lb. test gets the better of you. When it does, utilize the cut as a painful stripping guide when ripping streamers.

I've been through many many yards of 20# Ultragreen and had the cut countless times. Fly Fishing is not for wimps.

Got the same cut from the same line. Like a damned razor.

Looks like Sharkskin bite to me... and I LOVE Sharkskin.

I agree. I wear that groove about 9 months out of the year.

i was just reflecting on how mine has blessedly turned into the white, hard skin this morning and that hopefully i won't forget again.

@Fred - indeed, it is not. This one lasted a solid month.

Ivan said...

@ dave - i have found the RIO 1x to be more dastardly.

Ivan said...

@Mike - is that sarcasm?

Ivan said...

@ fontanalis - to me, it is a sign of good life decisions.

Ivan said...

@gfen - i always forget and then reacquire it. About a week prior to me taking this picture, I had this maxima gouge, plus three more tippet gouges. I was a collector.
