Slip Knot - Tying Fly to Leader
This is a simply tied knot for attaching
the fly to the leader, as illustrated below.
I have used this knot for many years as an alternative to the half -
blood knot. It is similar to the Grinner knot. moisten and tighten
the knot well and don't trim too close to the hook.
