How To Tie Fishing Knots

If you want to try out fishing, learn how to securely tie your fishing knot in this instructional video.

Hi, I'm Gavin Hodgson, fly fishing instructor and manager of Grangers Fishing Tackle here in South Kensington, London. We're going to talk you through some of the techniques and tips and help you get started in fishing. Okay, so whatever you're tying on, let us see, there are a multiple of knots that we try not to complicate things with.

If we stick with the same knot, the clench knot and count the turns through the eye of the hook – one turn, two turn, three turn, four turn – for a stronger knot, let's tie in through the bottom of the knot. The important part which many people miss out is not as important as on heavy models but on final lines, this section here of the tuck which goes back through the main knot, that will stop the knot slipping. So, as we let that know configure and tighten up, we always wet the knot, a little bit of lubrication to let the knot slide and it stops it over hitting which will then cause the knot to be broken.

Start the knot too tight, as you can see our barrel of turns and as we hook that tag with our model, it comes easy. .
