Knots

The Speed Clinch

This super easy knot comes courtesy of Tattered Fly. Tie the knot without a fly, don’t tighten all the way & slip it over the point of an indicator fly, moisten & tighten – easy NZ style rig.


The following videos by John Rippin of Guiding and Conservation show one method for all of the connections you will need from Reel to Fly. These are not necessarily my preferred methods but they are all worthy of consideration.Backing to Reel [Surgeons Loop] Nice idea – never seen it done like this.

I particularly like the method used to strip the outer coating from the fly line….Fly Line to Leader [Uni Knot]

Leader to Tippet
