The Yucatan knot was featured by Sam Mossman in last months Fishing News. Am I the only person who looks at it and thinks the knot pictured is an Albright knot?
He says the knot is the same as the Albright but it exits the opposite way......I don't know about this. Everywhere I look on the net the Yucatan is quite different, involves a double, and the leader is fed back through the loop in the double. See Yucatan Knot
This shows the braid is twisted around the leader, the FN article diagram shows the leader being twisted around the braid.
The only thing that makes sense to me is that the diagram they put in is the wrong one. It seems to be from Geoff Wilson's Knots and Rigs book.
I tried the knot today and it worked great, it is a nice snug, easy to tie knot except you do kneed a double with the loop intact.
