Default Re: How to tie a Palomar knot

Hi Jimmie,
We have about 20 of these knot guides which were put together for us a few years back on the UK website. I will start moving them across in small batches as time allows.

The palomar knot is a near 100% knot - more used for tying hooks to line for drop-shotting for bass or inshore game angling but no reason why it can't be used for flies to and once you know it, it is really simple. In fact hard to believe it is such a good knot as it seems TOO simple! LOL

Glad to hear you like the fly tying how to's - Simon Young works with me here in the UK office and loves his fly tying! He set up a small studio with a photographer friend of his and they were a production line of fly tying for several days! Watch out for more patterns to come over the winter.
