****** Hey there guys and gals. I’m really glad that so many of you have watched this video, and taken the time to learn something new. For many of you it was a knot that took you outside your comfort zone and yet so many of you stuck it through. And in doing so have made yourself more prepared to catch more, and bigger, fish. ***Almost half a million views!!! WOW THAT IS SO AMAZING FOR A LITTLE VIDEO I MADE FOR A FEW FRIENDS/CUSTOMERS AT THE TIME.

So now I am going to take myself outside of my own comfort zone.

As many of you know, I have fallen ill to an undiagnosed, unknown medical condition that has taken the use of my left arm, and leg from me. I have had a rough time mentally and have shut myself off from the world. Partially due to my exhaustion, partially due to my lack of mobility, and partially due to the shame I feel being this way.
I have tried countless times to try to break this, but it seems to be something that I must battle continuously.

So in my attempt to break free, my beloved Kate and I realized I should get out into nature more where I always felt I belonged. Yet I lack the mobility to do so. So to my surprise, she set up a GoFundMe account to try to raise enough money for me to get an electric cart that could handle both my size (Im a bit of a giant) as well as the terrain I normally could not be a part of anymore without a normal ability to walk or maneuver.

It’s not easy for me to ask for help from people. My whole life has been trying to be the one that helped, but never needed the help from others. So I ask that you all take a look at the site. I cannot ask you to donate money to me because I personally think there are people out there that could use it far more than I. But at the same time I am so desperate to get back outdoors. I’m hoping it will be a step towards recovering some part of myself again.
Many of you who got to know me, knew my vivaciousness for living free and a little bit wild. I’d really love to experience that again, even if just one more time.

So enough typing, I’m just going to post this here in hopes that a miracle happens. Although in my situation you tend to be less expectant of miracles due to my condition. But I suppose it never hurts to try.
So I humbly beg you to try to help me out. If times are tough, which I TOTALLY understand, then just share it perhaps. For even if I cannot get outdoors, it would be nice to know that there are people out there that are actually concerned.

Thank you in advance,
Matt Carter

This is the greatest line to line knot ever made for braided lines to a leader or top shot! This is my first video demonstration of it so i hope it helps!
