Fishing Knots

  • by my friend John Sherry is a great site to learn the knots needed to fish. I use an Improved Clinch knot to tie on flies, triple Surgeon knot for tippet, Perfection Loop for loop-to-loop (if needed), and a Nail knot to attach the fly line. Most fly lines these days come with a welded loop in the end. And many purchased leaders also have a loop to attach to the fly line.
  • Additional knots I use from time to time include the Blood knot for connecting larger diameter monofilament when creating a tapered leader and the Turle knot for steelhead flies.
  • Bob provided a Comment on the website and mentioned he used the Davy knot. I decided to check it out. I like it. Simple, small, and strong.
  • John has some wonderful knot card that fit in your pocket, bag, or vest if you need a refresher on how to tie the proper knots. You can see them HERE.
