B.C. Knot




Provides the strongest connection of tippet to fly.

B.C. Knot

  1. Pass a doubled section of leader through the hook eye with about 6 inches of tag end.
  2. Hold fly securely in one hand and wrap the tag end 5 times around the standing leader.
  3. Pass the tag end back through the small loop near the hook eye. Lubricate, draw tightly, avoid overlapping loops, and trim tag end. (Note this is the same knot as the clinch knot but it is tied with a doubled loop.)
