Welcome to Knot Tying

Albright (Backing) Knot

By James Castwell

This is one of many used to fasten the backing to the end of the fly line, it's my personal choice. So far I have never lost a fly line, but have seen others who used a nail knot do so when the coating slipped off the core of their line. I prefer to coat it with something like Plio-bond, or hot-glue. I do if I expect the knot to get a lot of wear, like salmon, bonefish or permit. For most other use I do not bother to coat it. Make sure both ends of the backing go through the loop in the fly line in the same direction. ~ J. Castwell
