Orvis knot

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

Description: Another good knot but without quite the same degree of ultimate strength as the Trilene or Palomar knots.


1. Pass the end of the tippet through the eye of the hook, then round the tippet and back through the loop that you have just made.

2. Take the tag end and wrap it round the second loop twice.

3. Now lubricate and tighten the knot.

4. Finish by trimming the tag end.
