Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions in some cases takes a little break from his fly-tying videos to concentrate on knot presentations. (He’s likewise done the 3-in-1 Uni Knot.) Here, he reveals you how to connect a strong loop knot by utilizing a mitten-scissor clamp. I believe you can achieve the exact same thing with a basic hemostat, however the mitten-scissor clamp makes things simpler.
Loop knots are terrific for enabling your fly to have more reasonable action in the water, however a few of the knots are a discomfort to connect. Plus, if your loop is too huge, the fly can nasty throughout casting. The appeal of the loop knot that Tim reveals here is that it’s super-easy to connect, and the resulting knot is rather little. Offer it a shot.
