Fishing Knots

The topic of fishing knots is a sure conversation-starter among anglers. Everyone has their favorites. While learning how to tie fishing knots is certainly important, learning how to tie all of them is impractical. Certain knots are popular for good reason. A good knot is first of all strong and dependable, lends itself to the job it’s supposed to do, and can be tied quickly and efficiently on the water.

Beyond that, a basic collection of serviceable knots need not be expansive. Most anglers have just a few they rely on, and a specialty knot or two, and have practiced enough to make them reliable. That’s the key to fishing knots: finding which knots work best for you and the type of fishing you do, then perfecting them so you can tie them without thinking about it.
