Better to know a knot and not need it, than need a knot and not know it.

Albright Knot Tying

Form a loop in one line (gold, thicker if unequal). Pass the end of the other (blue, thinner) line through the loop and wrap it neatly around itself and the loop 10 times. Then pass the end back through the loop next to itself. Lubricate, pull the knot tight, and trim the ends.

Albright Knot Details

Uses: The Albright Knot is a versatile knot that has a wide range of uses. It is only moderately easy to tie but it is suitable for joining different types of fishing line, e.g., Monofilament to Braided, or Braided to Wire.

It is also useful when joining monofilaments with markedly different diameters. It is commonly used to join the fly line to the backing line but can be used whenever you wish to join two fishing lines together.

Tying it: The initial loop is made in the larger line. It is important to wind the loops neatly round this loop. It helps to hold the loops under your fingers as you wind the line on.

Advantages: The Albright is well suited to slide readily through the guides when a fish pulls out enough line to reach your backing. Some anglers coat the knot with a rubber-based cement to make it even smoother and more secure.

Disclaimer: Any activity that involves ropes is potentially hazardous. Lives may be at risk - possibly your own. Considerable attention and effort have been made to ensure that these descriptions are accurate. However, many critical factors cannot be controlled, including: the choice of materials; the age, size, and condition of ropes; and the accuracy with which these descriptions have been followed.
