Non-animated Blood Knot
By James Castwell
Used for joining sections of leader or tippet, it is
the most often used. I usually make five turns with
each section for normal leaders, less for very heavy
material. Be sure to have the ends point in different
directions at the final stage, wet it and pull tight.
If the ends are pointing the same way, the coils of
one need to be wound in the opposite direction to
correct it. Many fly-fishers get so fast at this
knot they can tie it without looking until the last
end is pushed through the center.
