Perfection Loop

August 26, 2009
Author: Trouts Staff

When welded loops became common place on the end of premium fly lines, the perfection loop went from being an obscure knot, to one that is a must have for fly anglers of all skill levels.  Although some people dislike a loop-to-loop connection between their fly line and leader, I have found over the years that it’s benefits far out weigh any of its drawbacks.  It is incredibly easy, fast and efficient to attach your leader, and it also is a pretty seamless connection that slides through your guides easily.  The best part of this knot, it is incredibly easy.

Step 1:

Form a single loop by bringing the tag end behind the standing part of leader. The tag should be on the right-hand side.

Trip Report | Lower Blue River

August 12, 2009
Author: Trouts Staff

Despite brown-self-portraitthe high flows that have been coming out of Green Mountain Reservoir all year, this was the first time this season I had a chance to get out on the Lower Blue.  Conditions for my inaugural float were ideal at just under 500 cfs, so I had good expectations of the day; that was until I was driving up and noticed the beautiful silhouette of the FULL MOON against the backdrop of a blue bird day.  At that point I new the day was going to be a struggle, as the fish were undoubtedly pulling an all nighter feeding with the aid of the moonlight.  Never one to give up, I forged ahead fully prepared to get my butt kicked; but hey, a day on the water is better than just about anything else.

Bimini Twist

August 12, 2009
Author: Trouts Staff

This is definetally one of the more intimidating knots I learned to tie, mostly because everybody seems to make it out to be this impossible thing to do.  The reality is the Bimini Twist is a very easy knot to tie, and has many applications.

Step 1: begin by making a loop and twisting it 15-20 times.  Be sure to make the loop big enough to get a reel or spool of line through
