One knot that does it all
|There is a fishing knot that does it all - ties
flies or lures to your leader, creates loop knots, splices two line segments
together, snells hooks, attaches leaders to a fly line, and more. It sounds
like a tall order but the Duncan Loop or Uni-knot is up to the task. Its
breaking strength is at the top end of the spectrum - 95% or better. The
knot is stronger and more versatile than the traditional blood or cinch
knots typically used by fishermen.
The illustration depicts the basic knot. The basic process is to form
a circle knot and wrapping the tag end through it six times. Once formed
simply pull it tight against the hook eye.
