    Default Tying knots

    Wow I get frusterated at knots I know none of them and when I try to learn them I always end up getting my dad to do it because I run out of time to fish. *I want ot know what knots you guys use and how to tie them. Mabye some tips on not losing a valuble fly to a sloppy knot . *I have never been good at tying knots and always forget how to. *Like I said I don't know any knots at all. I have only learned one and have no idea whats its called asnd how to tie it. *Is there more than on knot. Tell me which ones you like to use . *DryFly 1 I know your out there so give me some advise. (No offence to the others DryFly 1 just popped in my head) Thanks.

    * *Giantfish

    If you go to the Orvis website and poke around under the Fly fishing category, you'll find a section on knot tying. The great thing about it is the animated knots tutorial section that shows you, step by step and at your own speed, how to tie the most popular and most used knots. Try the link below and have fun!

    Wow that was cool and it really helpped. I added it to my favorites so if I do forget it's right there. Thanks that was fun and it goes at my pace and it shows an upclose version instead of a tiny line. You shold tell other about that! I hope more of you guys readthis. Trust me if you stink at knots this will help
