The Essential Guide to Fly Fishing Knots

Orvis Knot

Fly Attachment Knots

Palomar Knot

A knot that is easy to tie and has a good breaking strength of over 90%. It can be difficult passing the line twice through the hook eye but pass the tag end though one way first and then back. Then make the loop as small as possible and pass it over the hook. Tighten by first pulling both ends – then the tag end alone.

Duncan Loop

The classical loop for flies that need to work freely on the tippet. It is easy to tie and can be tightened according to taste.

Orvis Knot

Can form a loop that tightens when under strain. Its strength almost compares to the Trilene knot with a 95% average.
