Here are some videos (more coming soon) for you to see how the knots are tied using The Knot Kneedle®
Probably the most used knot in fishing. It is easy to learn, remember, and tie; the Knot Kneedle® ties a very consistent, strong clinch knot. It is a good knot for terminal tackle.
This is supposedly stronger than the clinch and many anglers swear by it. The Knot Kneedle® will tie this easily and consistently! It requires one extra pass through the loop created by the tag end passing through the base loop.
One of my personal favorites. It is very fast and easy to tie, once learned. This is one of the knots that started the idea for The Knot Kneedle®. With The Knot Kneedle® it can be tied in easily less than 15 seconds and it wastes very little tippet!
The uni knot is a great knot for dry/dropper rigs and the Rocky Mountain Nymph Rig (3-fly rigs) as it can be loosened and tightened on the bends of the hooks of the lead flies. If you initially picked the wrong dropper for the hatch, quickly change this one out by loosening the knot and throw on your next pre-tied dropper and start fishing!
Loop knots are great for loop to loop connections for leader to fly line and the non-slip loop knot is great for streamers and other flies that you want to have some unfettered movement to entice fish.
This knot is ideal for those that want “movement” in their flies and streamers. The loop stays open (unlike the uni knot which cinches tight against the hook) which enables your fly to move back and forth on the loop.
This is a great knot for a loop to loop connection from your leader to fly line. I also use this knot to tie a “hook holder” on my vest for holding flies while I tie the knots. You can also use it similar to the non-slip loop knot to attach flies and give them more movement!
Davy knots are terrific for terminal tackle when you want very strong and fast knot.
Similar to the Orvis Knot (one less pass through the second loop), but it is not as strong as the Orvis. It was invented as a quick knot for anglers in tournaments so they could get their lines in the water quickly.
Every guide I talk to asks me if The Knot Kneedle® can tie the surgeons’ knot. Of course it can! It ties it quickly and I know many guides that prefer The Knot Kneedle® for that reason alone!
Surgeon’s knot is great for adding tippet to leaders (I personally prefer tippet rings), or to add tippet of different sizes to create your own tapered leaders.
The Nail Knot is a classic. Very strong and streamlined knot that has mostly been replaced by the loop to loop connections. But should you find yourself without a welded loop on your fly line, this knot will save the day.
This is, IMO, the hardest fly fishing knot to tie… NOT ANYMORE!!!! The Knot Kneedle® has made this a breeze. Watch this video, practice, and you will consistently tie this knot in under a minute. It is great for adjoining two tippet sizes together for a tapered leader or for attaching a butt section to your tapered leader. No matter the size of the tippet, The Knot Kneedle® will help you tie this knot efficiently and effectively. Be sure you use the proper number of wraps for your size tippet and line!
You can tie the nail knot with The Knot Kneedle® The nail knot is terrific for attaching backing to fly line and for attaching the leader to the fly line. It is a very strong knot and is less used with the welded loops on the fly line tips and the loop on most tapered leaders. However, this is a VERY important knot and will save the day if the loop on your fly line gives way!
The Albright Knot is great for attaching backing to fly line or braided line to mono or fluorocarbon. The Knot Kneedle® makes this knot easy to tie!
San Diego Jam Knot is an awesome knot to attach braided line to terminal tackle.
Double Uni Knot is a knot used by many anglers. I personally prefer the triple surgeons as I am a fly fisher at heart. The double uni is really strong and handy for connecting monofilament and fluorocarbon line to braided line. The Knot Kneedle® can tie the uni knot two different ways: one using the nail knot tool (under the red cap), and one by grabbing the tag end and "sewing" the knot.
J Knot, for those of you interested in learning another knot!
The Braid Knot is basically a double clinch knot that can be used with braided line. The standard clinch does NOT work well with braided line at all, but the Knot Kneedle® makes this knot a cinch!
"The Trilene Knot, also known as the Two Turn Clinch Knot is a very strong and reliable connection to be used in joining monofilament, fluorocarbon, or braided line to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures. The knot can be considered a "100% knot" in that the line often breaks above its rated strength, not at the knot." - NetKnots.com
The Dropper Loop Knot is used when fishing for carp and can also be used to attach split shot to and it prevents split shot from sliding up and down your tippet as you make your casts.
Now you can tie the clinch knot on the bend of the hook without the tippet coming off the bend while you are trying to cinch it down. The Knot Kneedle® keeps tension on the bend so you only have to tie ONCE!!!
The Baja Knot is a fast knot to tie when you want some motion in your fly. Great for streamers and much faster than the non-slip loop knot.
You can utilize The Knot Kneedle® as a fly holder or hook holder to thread your flies! This prevents "fat fingers" from blocking the eye of the fly so you can thread the eye and quickly grab the tag end and tie your knots.
The FG knot is a very smooth, very strong knot. The Knot Kneedle® keeps some tension on the tag end while tying the FG.
