The quintessential Fly Fishing Knot...
Once again TightLineVideo creates the most well thought out, educational, and coherent instructional video available for a skill that every fly fisherman should have in his quiver, tying the blood knot. Tying the blood knot is especially critical for those of us who tie our own tapered leaders, even those who buy pretapered leaders will benefit from having this knot in their repertoire when tying on new tippet. Although it is not the simplest or quickest knot to tie, the blood knot stands out in it's strength and slender profile, which make it both forgiving in the cast, and reliable in the fight. Tight lines!
