Fly Fishing Knots
All fishermen use knots. However, fly fishing seems to require more of them than any other type of fishing. For instance, we use an Arbor Knot to attach the backing to the reel arbor, we use a Nail Knot or Nail-less Nail Knot to attach the backing to the fly line and the fly line to the leader butt, and then we use a Clinch Knot or Improved Clinch Knot to attach the tippet to the fly. Or, as with some people who build their own leaders, a Blood Knot is used to attach different sizes of tippet material together to form the leader and then a Perfection Loop is sometimes used to attach the leader to the tippet and then a Clinch Knot or Improved Clinch Knot is used to attach the tippet to the fly. Whew! Now that's a lot of knots!
