  1. Wow, I have seen many tricks for tying this knot, this one looks the easiest. I will test this when I get home tonight

    1. Oh HALLELUJAH! Thanks man, this knot has been kicking since day one. Fish on!

      Your volume is good.

  2. I can’t find toothpicks on the Orvis website.

    Where can I find these fly fishing pieces of wood?!!! Going over to check out Gink and Gasoline.


  3. Check out the Tippet knot Tim Rajeff uses that came from Lefty Kreh. It can be tyed this fast with just fingers. He shows it in a vid on YouTube.

  4. Good grief. Thanks for attempting to provide a tip; but could have done a watermark right across the middle of the screen where it essentially blocks the view of the important stuff.
