How to tie a blood knot

The blood knot is one of the most commonly used and effective knots to tie two pieces of line together. Mostly used by fly fishermen when they are attaching tippet to their tapered leader. The blood knot is a very strong knot, getting very close to 100%, and its also very small, thin and smooth. Just make sure the two lines are close in diameter as two lines that are far different could cause the knot to fail.

Difficulty: medium
Time: medium
Strength: high
Usefulness: This is a great knot for adding tippet to leader

Best tippet knot ever!...

The Infinity Knot is the easiest, fastest, and strongest tippet knot ever. So efficient it will actually help you to catch more trout under real fishing conditions. I have no idea how or why this knot has flown under the radar of virtually every knot article ever written. I should have it on YouTube ("Infinity Knot") soon.

The Infinity Tippet Knot...

The "Infinity Tippet Knot" demonstration is now available on YouTube. I hope to make it available here at GlobalFlyFisher as soon as possible. The video is now online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om6GBkh5TsE
