This knot is designed to connect your fly to your tippet. It is a small, secure knot that requires a minimal amount of tippet to complete. This makes it perfect for individuals that like to change flies often, but want to maximize their tippet to fly ratio.
The prime zone for this knot is size 8 hooks and smaller, and tippet 2x – 6x. We have found that this knot will sometimes slip when tied on larger hooks. This knot is perfect for typical trout fishing in our VA streams.
