The ‘Z-Knot’

By kind permission from Jan Siman – http://shop.goflyfish.cz/en/blog/z-fly-fishing-knot-n4

Published: 2016-06-14 17:00:09 Categories: Fly Fishing

Authors: Petri Kemppainen, Jan Šiman

This knot is the strongest one we know to attach a fly to the tippet. We have tested it over 5 year on Stroft tippets ABR and GTM and its strength is almost 100%!!! (most often the tippet breaks far away from the hook eye rather than at the knot). In addition, it is fast to tie (once you get used to it) as there is no threading of the tag end through any loops – rather thumb and index finger are used to grab the tag end to pull it through. This means also that this knot is easier to tie also in poor light or for people with impaired eyesight. – Jan Šiman
