Orvis Knot

SDHflyfisher,

The Orvis knot is another way to attach your fly to your tippet.

Here's a good link that shows you how to tie it:

Knots I Use

I use blood knots for leaders to the tippet. I attach that with a double surgeons.

I use the non-slip loop to attach tippets to the polyleaders I use.

I use the Jansick special to attach hooks, because I have found it to be stronger than the Palomar. I will also use the non-slip loop for some hooks for summer steelhead.
