What’s the best knot to use for a thick leader?
Very shortly I hope to be paying a second visit to Silver King Lodge in Costa Rica – one of the best venues in the world for catching giant tarpon on the fly. The fish are huge and thinking about the trip reminded me of a great knot I learned for tying on a fly employing a loop. It’s dead easy to tie and completely reliable. Here’s how to do it for those who may be interested.
This time I have son James accompanying me and I just can’t wait to see his face when he hooks into one of those explosive sliver giants!
Job done! Give it a try – you’ll like it!
