How To Tie An Albright Knot
In this video Alvin DeDeaux demonstrates how to tie an Albright Knot. The Albright Knot is our prefered method of attaching fly line to backing. Many people will use a Knail Knot, but for the once in a lifetime chance you will get to see your backing, you want the strongest knot which is the Albright. We Also use the albright for attaching two drastically different diameters of tippet. For those that like to chase pike, a standard setup is to run 20lb monofilament to a 20 inch piece of bite guard material. The best way to adjoin these two materials is with the Albright.
Quick Tip: This knot takes a little practice and training your fingers to work right. If you still can’t get it, swing by the shop and we will help you!
