Fly Fishing Knots A Boy Scout Traditionfrom: www.fishingsecretsrevealed.com
So now is the time that you wished you had paid more attention at Boy Scout camp! You need to know how to tie fly-fishing knots, and you are lost. That is ok; never fear there is hope for you after all. One of the most important things to start with is to be aware of what types of fishing knots there are. Terminology is one of the leading factors in learning to do anything. Here we will cover the basic fly fishing knots with a little information to get you started. If you are interested in learning the step by step there are many products that can be purchased to give you a more in-depth look at fishing knots.
The Arbor knot is one of the most important fly fishing knots! The Arbor knot keeps your fishing line attached to the reel spool. If not connected correctly your fish can certainly slide right off your line, which is not a good situation! The Arbor knot is relatively easy to do, basically you want to loop the line around the reel arbor, tie an over handed knot with the line that is already there then pull tight. It is recommended that you remove the excess from the Arbor knot.
If your hands are freezing the double surgeons knot is one of the easiest to tie. The double surgeons knot works very well and can be performed under frigid conditions. It works best when adding a tippet to a leader. Another great use for the double surgeon’s knot is if you have to tie two lines that are different diameters, together. First the leader and tippet need to be placed beside one another, holding the leader/tippet now an over handed knot over them, the tippet must pass through the loop, the tippet and leader now need to be passed through again, tighten to a snug fit.
Fly fishing knots are essential to setting up your fishing equipment. If you have trouble tying them or need more information about the more complex knots look for instructional material. There are many sources of fly fishing knots on the web and at sporting good stores. The more complex knots such as the nail knot and the Albright knot take some instructions and maybe the illustrations of diagrams. They are a bit more involved and take a bit more instruction. An experienced fisherman can certainly give you a lesson or two in tying fly fishing knots. If you do not have anyone that fishes in the family or do well with written instructions you may want to hire a guide to help you out.
