The Slim Beauty Knot is so named because it is a small, straight knot used to connect lines of different materials and diameters, such as a large-diameter tippet to a main line, as illustrated here. It is a strong, easy-to-tie knot used by tarpon fishermen and others as a replacement to the more complicated Bimini Twist.
This knot also has a reputation for holding almost 100% of the breaking strain of a line. The Slim Beauty can be tied to connect large to small diameters, and braided line to mono, while still resulting in a small, straight knot. Learn how to tie the Slim Beauty Knot following the 8 steps below.
