I just got back from the Pere Marquette river in Michigan. I fair hooked and landed 3 fresh salmon.

I hooked several salmon and was either broken off or had to break off from many because they were foul hooked. My improved Davy knot to the fly worked flawlessly. The line never broke at the knot. The fly either pulled out of the fish or the tippet-to-leader knot failed.

I was using a surgeons knot to bind the tippet to the leader. It's certainly a simple knot, but it has failed me often. Any recommendation for a stronger knot than the surgeons knot.
