The Albright Knot

May 4, 2010
Author: Trouts Staff

The Albright Knot may not be a standard knot in most anglers tool box, but it will open up a ton of different options when it come to rigging your line.  The Albright Knot is most commonly used to attach fly line to backing, but it can be used in a variety of other applications.  I regularly use this knot when fishing the Rocky Mountain Arsenal where I use large gauge shock tippet at the end of my leader to ensure that the pike don’t bite off my fly.  In this application, I tie 5′ – 7′ of 15lb fluorocarbon off my fly line, and then attach 12″ – 16″ of 30lb shock tippet to the fluorocarbon using the Albright Knot.  I then will attach my fly to the end of the shock tippet.

Albright Knot 1

Step 1: form an open ended loop with your fly line or large diameter monofilament.  Pass the backing or smaller diameter monofilament through the loop, leaving a tag end roughly 6″ long.

Hint: anchor the tag end by holding it between your thumb and index finger that are creating the loop.
