    The only time I ever tie it to the bend of the hook is when winter grayling fishing when there is little chance of something coming for the dry.

    I suggest tying your dry off a dropper and therefore having both your dry and nymph capable of taking fish during the trout season, even a short dropper you are wanting to fish the trio (2 nymphs off the dry).

    Have used a snell/uni style knot on barbless Klink hooks which because of wraps is not probe to sliding round the bend.It worked but found other methods better for presentation,less of a fiddle and risk free.

    I think any reliable knot should hold it securely?
    If you don't have tippet rings you could ...
    Cut the shank from a hook and tie that in for the eye, bait hooks have barbs on the shank facing towards the eye so it would tie in very securely?

    Afraid not Al.Some barbless dry fly hooks like below are more prone to slipping the knot especially a Clinch or Davy.

    Jcp everyday is a school day

    OP I've only used the method a handful of times and the nylon,s never moved using a grinner/uni knot.

    I use this method from time to time as well and I've never lost anything tied to the bend. (I only I fish barbless).

    I am going to try tying the dry on a jig hook though and tie the dropper to the eye of that in case the nylon tied to the bend is hampering hookups.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.
