  1. The Palomar knot is great for big game fish that pull hard. The knot continues to tighten when being pulled on, and the double loops around the hook eye make for a strong and abrasion resistant knot. Its also very quick to tie. I used to use this knot fairly often when working on the party boats taking people out for albacore. Sometimes the albacore would be hitting so quickly, that the second the bait hits the water my customers would have a fish on. Many of them broke off, and needed new hooks tied on. This being strong, but so quick to tie was my go to knot. I was tying knots for customers at least 10 per minute while also having to try and gaff their fish. This knot is also very common for fly fishing. Many people use this knot for their first fly on a nymph dropper. Then they do not cut the tag end off, but use the tag end for their 2nd fly. A quick and easy way to make a two fly rig. Check out the video here... Or below the video you can visit my site that also has the video along with other videos available. http://www.mcflyangler.com/palomar-knot
  2. The triple surgeons knot is probably one of the easiest knots to connect your tippet to your leader. Its also quite strong. While not quite 100%, it will do the trick. And when you are out on the water, sometimes you want to tie up your rig quickly, to keep yourself on the water longer. Difficulty: Easy Time: Fast Strength: Medium Usefulness: Attaching two pieces of monofilament or flourocarbon. Check out the video from the link below. http://www.mcflyangler.com/triple-surgeons-knot
  3. The duncan loop (also called grinner knot) is a great knot for attaching flies or fishing lures to your monofilament or fluorocarbon line when you want more movement. The loop this knot creates really helps the hook or lure move freely and act more natural in the water. This is also a very strong knot. Difficulty: Medium Time: Fast Strength: High Usefulness: Attaching lures or flies to your line with a loop. Music: Ukulele - Bensound.com
