The Ramblings of a Fly Fisherman

Knot of the Month - The Duncan Loop

Part of the success of fly fishing deals directly with the action that an angler can give to the fly that is being presented. While many of us use various knots to attach our flies, often we migrate toward a favorite and use that one for nearly everything. I have discovered that there are considerations to be made as you attempt to fish particular patterns. This month’s knot addresses streamers. Streamers need to flow naturally and appear unrestricted as they swim through a pool. A great knot to use to further that action is a Duncan Loop.  Link to Video
