Video Pro Tips: How to Tie the Davy and Double Davy Knots

Written by: Phil Monahan

A couple years ago, we posted a video on tying the Davy Knot by my friend Zach Matthews. With all due respect to Zach, the folks at Tightline productions have got higher production values. So if you didn’t quite get the Davy Knot back then, this video will answer all your questions. The knot is the creation of Davy Wotton, who is a Welshman relocated to Flippin, Arkansas.

For more information on Davy himself, check out his elaborate website.

The Davy Knot (bottom) is considerably less obtrusive than the standard Clinch Knot.

    I started using this last year after Tightlines did their video. So far it’s proven to be just as strong as the clinch and just a bit easier to tie.

    Significantly less strength in the larger tippet sizes, but 4x and down less of a disparity, I like this for small olives midges, tricos etc.
