There are a number of different ways of tying flies on the end of your line and connecting two different sized lines together. Nothing is more frustrating than being on your Stand Up Paddle board on a mountain lake or standing in the flats and not being able to effectively tie the knot required to catch the fish you see. We have found these two knots to be particularly effective when you are looking to have the fly hang free and when you are in situation where you are joining two different strengths of line together. Also the perfection loop is very handy when you need to create a loop at the end of your line.
- Non slip knot– strong loop knot that allows a fly to hang free.
- Albright knot– exceptional when tying lines of different strengths
- Perfection loop knot– Great for tying a loop at the end of the line.
Our friend and guide at Yucatan on the fly Rhett Schober provided a nice clinic on these three knots the last time we were fishing the flats with him in Boca Paila, Mexico.
