The Pocket Guide to Fishing Knots

A Step-by-Step Guide to the Most Important Knots for Fresh and Salt Water

If you want to land the trout, salmon, bass, marlin, striper, pike, or shark of a lifetime, you have to know how to tie great knots!

Every fisherman knows that fishing success comes down to effective connections—the angler must first ensure that the knot connections throughout the fishing line are sound and appropriate for the task at hand.

A failed knot will bring your otherwise happy day to a screeching halt and leave you muttering about what might have been. In The Pocket Guide to Fishing Knots, learn the knots of success, and why the connections are recommended by the country's top anglers. Some of the knots featured here include:

  • Blood knot
  • Perfection loop
  • Improved clinch
  • Double surgeon's
  • Albright knot

Whether you’ve spent a lifetime fishing the waters of the world, or this is your first season casting a line, The Pocket Guide to Fishing Knots will be sure to help you get your biggest catch yet.
