Fly Fishing Knots and Knot Tying.


In recent times, fly fishing has earned the status of a real sport. It is different in many ways from conventional fishing. There are quite a few choices to be made regarding the equipment you will use, depending on, the weather, the water depth, the current, the kind of fish you're after and so on. Also, you will need to master several different tactics to become successful in fly fishing. For instance, there are many different types of  knot which can be used in fly fishing and it’s important to choose the right knot for each application. It’s even more important to tie it correctly and securely.  

Always test your fly fishing knots before you use them. It's also a good idea is to lubricate a knot with water or saliva before tightening. This willgive you a much more secure knot. If the knots are not fully tightened you may end up with fish escaping, sometimes along with your fly and leader. When a knot shows sign of wear and tear it needs to be replaced. It is quite disheartening to see a big trophy fish escaping and swimming away because of a loosely tied knot.  

You do not need to master every type of fly fishing knot. A few fairly basic ones can serve you well. Once you are comfortable with a particular type of knot then you should stick to it. You could search the Internet and find hundreds of fly fishing knots. But which of these should you choose? Which are the easiest to tie?  

A few of the fly fishing knots you may want to learn are, the albright knot, double surgeons knot, improved clinch knot and nail knot. These and many others are shown with step by step instructions and illustrations in a free bonus e-book on this website. They are shown in a way that makes them very easy to learn and remember. 

Once you’ve  acquired the skills needed to tie fly fishing knots correctly you’ll be able to use them even in low light conditions. If you want to be a serious fly fisherman this is a technique you will need to master. Before you know it you’ll be catching Largemouth Bass, Cutthroat, Rainbow trout, Brook Trout etc.
