If you like fishing two- or even three-nymph rigs, you know that one of the problems is the dropper line can tangle around the main line. George Daniel has a very simple solution for adding a dropper line that comes off the main line at a 90-degree angle, thus reducing tangles. And he accomplishes this with a simple clinch knot, which slides down on a surgeon’s knot. These are super-easy to tie, and I think you’ll see the benefits of this system immediately.
George Daniel operates Livin On The Fly, a guide service in State College, Pennsylvania. He is also the author of Strip-Set: Fly-Fishing Techniques, Tactics, & Patterns for Streamers, as well as Dynamic Nymphing.
