Nail Knot

Author: Cabela's Staff

The Nail Knot is an old favorite to connect large diameter line to a smaller diameter line. It is commonly used in fly-fishing to connect a shock tippet to a leader or fly line to backing. It is a very effective and compact knot that will easily travel through the guides on your rod. A nail, hollow tube or other straight, rigid tool with a smooth surface must be used to effectively tie this knot. Although using a nail or other tool will suffice, you will find using a hollow tube is the easiest way to tie this knot.
