Double turle knot

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font
Use: Tying on flies.

Description: This is an improved and more secure version of the simple turle knot.


1. Pass the end of the tippet through the eye of the hook and make two simple loops.

2. Carry the end of the tippet on and make an overhand knot around both loops.

3. Pass both loops over the hook, moisten and then use both parts of the tippet to draw the knot tight, snug against the eye of the hook.

4. Trim off the tag end.
