Truly one of the quickest if not the quickest fishing knot to tie. This knot is also called the Penny Knot, some call it the Eugene Slip Knot – and according to one of our YouTube viewers, Greg Letter, this knot is related to the Pitzen knot and the San diego jam knot. I am knot kidding you!
I used this knot at times to quickly tie on a lure or fly to the leader. You can basically tie this knot without looking and that can come in handy sometimes when you need to keep an eye on a fish in a river or a cruising fish in the flats.
I got some requests to make this video after I made a YouTube #short video earlier showing this knot. But because one of the requirements for a YT “short” video is being under 60 seconds I did not get a chance to show how to tie the knot. I wanted to demonstrate it is really a quick easy knot to tie, those who are not familiar couldn’t figure it out hence this video.
I hope it help some of you. Leave me a comment below about what you think.
