The Clinch Knot is an excellent fly-fishing knot that allows you to quickly re-rig a rod into a two-fly rig. Tie the top fly on with the Clinch, then tie on a dropper line by using the knot to make a loop at the end of a length of tippet and anchoring it to the top hook. Then you can attach the bottom fly using another Clinch. These knots are quick and easy to make, especially if you use the rotating finger method. Include at least five twists—with a lighter line, seven or eight twists—and the Clinch is good to go. Learn how to tie the Clinch Knot following the 4 simple steps below.
