Rigging Video: Clinch Knot Vs. Improved Clinch Knot

We have a new addition to our Rigging Series of videos. Davis and Ben recently sat down to create a short video that explains the basics of the clinch knot and the improved clinch knot.

If you haven’t seen our other recent videos in the Rigging Series, be sure to check them out. They include DIY streamer leaders, blood knots and the basic nymph rig. You can find these and more on our Video Page.

In this latest video, Ben goes step by step through both the clinch knot and the improved clinch knot and provides a few pointers on when to use each. After all, that’s one of the most common questions – when to improve or not?

See what Ben has to say about it:

In addition to the rigging videos, our Video Page has a long (and growing) list of fly tying videos, gear updates and more. And if you look at our fly tying videos, you’ll notice a “tie this fly” link under many of the videos. That link will take you to the fly page where you can easily add all the materials to your shopping cart in one place! It’s one of the features of our website that we are most proud of and we hope you take advantage of that resource. And as always, shipping is free!

If you have questions about the rigging, the fly tying or anything else, please come see us at the shop. Or you can call us at 303-794-1104.
