New Rigging Video: The Albright Knot

The latest in our Rigging Video Series is now up on YouTube. This time, Davis and Doug sat down in the tying room to film a quick tutorial on how to tie an Albright Knot. This is a very useful knot for any angler to know. As Doug explains in the Video, the Albright is a great knot for connecting two sections of line that are very different in diameter or even different types of material.

Named after the Florida tarpon guide, Jimmy Albright in the 1950s, the Albright Knot is commonly used to tie a fly line to the backing, or to join a wire bite leader with monofilament. A good Albright will typically have 10 to 12 wraps, but you can get away with fewer wraps on heavier line material.

Whether you find yourself replacing a fly line, or working with heavy or differing leader materials, this is a very useful knot to be comfortable with. With a little bit of practice, this will be a nice addition to your knot toolkit.
