Tying the Turle Knot

This knot is perfect when tying flies with turned-down or turned-up eyes. When it’s secured the leader will have a straight pull through the eye. This eliminates the possibility of cutting the leader and helps the fly to keel evenly in the current.

Step 1. Pass the leader through the eye. Next, make two wraps around the standing line and pass the tag end through the loops forming an overhand knot. Then tighten the knot.

Step 2. Slip the fly through the large loop and snug it up against the eye.

Step 3. Tighten it down and trim off the excess and it’s ready to fish.
