Tying Knots - Improved Surgeons Loop
by Ken Collins - April 16, 2016
This knot is a must have.In fact I tell students they should practice this knot so much that they could tie it without looking at it. I use this knot for all tippet to leader replenishments. I can tie three or four sets of these to anyones single redition of the triple surgeons or barrel knot which is the fly fishers typical knots of choice for replacing damaged or lost tippet on leaders. I would agree normally but over the years I have found that the person with the line in the water is catching the fish. Not the person standing on the side of the river tying knots.
