The Orvis Knot is similar to other line-to-hook knots like Improved Clinch, Uni/Duncan, Palomar, and Trilene Knots. It is a small, strong knot that is highly reliable and very easy to tie, and retains most of a line’s breaking strain. It can also be used with any tippet material, and with lines that are light or heavy.
The Orvis was invented by Larry Becker as a submission to the Orvis Company’s competition to find the best line-to-hook knots. Learn how to tie the Orvis Knot following the 7 steps below.
