This article contains some great casting tips:
The lowest amount of joints in the connection with the fish and the fisher the better. All joints should be:
-Very strong, not showing any weaknesses.
-Compact, so it goes through the smallest of rod rings easily, and the storage on the reel is equal.
-Regular, so there are no protruberances to catch onto things.
-Able to last for a long time.
-Able to withstand shock loading as well as a continuous strain, so that it can cope with catching a fighting fish easily.
-Easy to make, so that it can be tied with ease in different difficult circumstances (e.g. late at night).
-Consistent, so that the same thing can readily be re-produced, again and again.
Knots to attach the fly
We recommend the following (in order of strength):
- Two-turn double Turle
- Tucked Half-Blood,
For tying salmon hooks the Dougie and Two-turn double Turle are the best to use as they can take advantage of forming the knot around the hook shank.
For trout fishing the best knot is the Grinner knot. For the majority of trout flies, the knots mentioned above cannot be used, but the Grinner knot does need a reasonable length of nylon to tie.
For sea trout fishing during the night-time, the Cleave knot can be tied easily and should be considered.
Practise knot tying
To ensure great quality knots should be tied consistently and it is well worth spending some of your time practising creating them, especially for the night sea trout .
Palomar, Water Knot, Uni-Knot and Albright.
