LEARN THE TURLE

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - READING RIVERS -

Only a few knots are suit­able for sal­mon fish­ing. For sin­gle and dou­ble hooks, I stick to the dou­ble turle. Most other knots are prone to catch your leader, un­less your cast­ing is top-notch. With tubes, the stan­dard clinch or im­proved clinch knot (half-blood) is all you need. There­fore, I’m a great fan of tube-flies and at least 90 per cent of my flies are tied on tubes.
