Knots are essential to fly fishing and take time to master. With time and practice, you’ll find faster and more efficient ways to tie your favorite knots. Two knots you will have to learn and be comfortable with is one that will connect fly to tippet, and leader to tippet.
I’m a very visual learner, so I like to learn by watching videos. You can pause, rewind, and go back time and again. I recently stumbled across two great videos. Hint: if you are running these videos off a desktop or laptop, tap “spacebar” to pause the videos.
There are a lot of videos on how to tie knots out there, the key is to find a credible video that is simple to understand. Both videos are by Rio, a brand we trust and represent. Enjoy!
