Knots can be intimidating. Look we have all been in those situations when the fish of a lifetime breaks you off, or better yet, you lose another fly in a battle with a tree. No matter the case, knowing your knots is important. More importantly, knowing when to use certain knots is critical on the water. That is why we are taking out the guesswork when it comes to what knot to use in any situation on the water. Here are a couple of knots, featured on our new page.
Arguably one of the most popular knots in fly fishing, The Blood knot is well known for its ability to combine two pieces of leader or tippet of similar size and diameter.
The Clinch knot along with The Blood knot are some of the most popular when it comes to fly fishing. The Clinch knot is also known as The Salmon Knot and is typically used when securing your tippet to your fly through the eye of the hook.
The No-Slip Loop knot also known as the "Khre Loop" was made popular by one of the most famous fly anglers in the world, Lefty Kreh. This loop-to-fly connection gives more "action" to your flies and is an excellent knot option when fishing streamers or wet flies.
Most well known by Tarpon fisherman, the Slim Beauty is an excellent knot to know when venturing out to the saltwater. Typically this knot is used when adjoining a large-diameter tippet to your fly line. Known for its ease and reliability, this knot is commonly used in place of a Bimini Twist.
