Setting Up a Fly Fishing Reel : Fly Fishing Needle Knot for Leader


Okay, we’re going to attach the liter to the
fly line again, but this time we’re going to do it with a needle. We’re still doing
a nail knot, but we’re just going to do it a little bit easier way. Same thing, we’re
going to line up the fly line and the needle, you see the eye of the needle here. And then
we’re going to have the liter going the opposite direction through here. And we’re going to
grab that end of the liter, wrap it back this way toward the end of the needle and the end
of the fly line, four wraps, that’s all we need. One, two, three, four. And then we’ll
take the end of the liter, poke it through the eye of the needle, and then pull that
back through the loops that we just made. And this is a little bit easier because, once
again, we do not have to worry so much about the loops sliding because they’re much snugger
than they were in the nail knot tool. So we’ll pull the needle out, that pulls the end of
the liter out, snug it up, pull both ends of the liter nice and tight. And that’s what
it looks like when it’s done. You can clip it off as close as you want here, and as close
as you want here and it shouldn’t slide out. You just want to give it a good hard tug to
test it. If it doesn’t come out now, then it probably won’t ever come out.
