Excellent knot for connecting lines of unequal diameters.
Commonly used to join the fly line to the backing. It is useful to connect the leader to the fly line (it makes a stronger connection than the nail knot).
- Make a loop in the end of the fly line. Pass the backing or the leader through this loop.
- Make at least 5 twists. You can make up to 10 twists if you want a longer knot that will slide through the rod’s line guides more easily. Pass the tag end through the fly line loop in the opposite direction.
- Lubricate, draw tightly, avoid any overlapping loops, and trim the tag end.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
