Tying Knots - Cinch
by Ken Collins - April 16, 2016
Here is the quickiest easiest knot to learn to tie your flies to your tippets. This knot is 70 percent strong and is very difficult to tie badly. If you tie the improved version (one extra step) and do this at all wrong you will have a less than 50 percent knot strength. If you tie it correctly you could gain 6 to 8 percent more strength. I choose not to tie the extra step for fear of getting abad knot. The cinch knot is fine.
