Skills: Super Easy Non-slip Knot

I use non-slip knots almost exclusively when fishing streamers—I think they give flies more action in the water, and they’re very dependable. But, as age and … evoloving… eyesight are kicking in, tying the knot sometimes takes a while.

Above, Tim Flager shows a great way to tie the non-slip knot using a scissor clamp—a great tool that I’m going to start carrying with me on the water. It’s a handy device that makes tying this knot easy and quick, and it’s multiple-use clamp and scissor features make it a great tool to have, even if you don’t us it to tie knots.
