Well then i guess the knot i use is "technicaly" not a improved clinch then becuase i always pass the line through the eye twice on my flies unless i am using a fly smaller than a size 14 then i pass it through once.

what you tie is a regular clinch knot works fine for larger lines but may slip with light lines

when using wire i use a figure 8 knot

QUOTE (steeldrifter @ Jan 14 2004, 07:04 PM)
i thought thats what made it a "improved" clinch knot (through the eye twice) then 5-6 times around. Through the eye once is just the clinch knot.........or at least thats what i have seen huh.gif

SD

didnt i say that to begin with rolleyes.gif ?

But then the link OSD gave shows once through the eye as the "improved" clinch dunno.gif

I use a trilene knot, or a palomar knot. Both work great, but I have more confidence in trilene. Tight lines and good tyin!-redneck

yeah trilene not goes through eye twice.... ive always used the improved clinch...but last yr was having problems on smaller flies..... say 16 -22 I think because it was a smaller fly I was only going around 4 wraps.... do you guys still wrap the smaller flies 6x's ?????

With flourocarbon line I had some problems with the improved clinch Knot slipping, st fly to leader now I use the Homer Rhodes loop knot. no more slippage and it lets the flt swing more than the clinch. with mt OTHER gear from power pro to swivel I use the palomar then the loop from leader to jig
But thats another topic alltogether.,, jigs

With the plain clinch you dont pass the bitter end back through the loop made after the initial pass through the bottom loop ,, if that makes any sense
