• Perfection Loop : Smaller knot, pretty straight, very easy to tie and learn. Useful when tying knots to leaders and when using loop to loop connections. Applications: Fresh water fish, salt water fish, fly or standard rod
• Surgeon’s Loop: Large knot, has a tendency to catch on the guides when going through. Applications: Fresh water fish, salt water fish, fly or standard rod
• Double Surgeon’s Knot: Best used when joining the leader with the tipit for fly fishing. This will preserve the leader by adding consistency. Applications: Fresh water fish, salt water fish, fly or standard rod
• Non Slip Loop Knot: Gives the hook more life when fishing with streamers.
• Improved Clinch knot: More bulky but a solid multiple application knot. Applications: Fresh water fish, salt water fish, fly or standard rod
• Clinch Knot: 90% break rate, use sparingly. Applications: Fresh water fish, salt water fish, fly or standard rod
