Knots Description

How to Tie Albright Fishing Knot 

The Albright knot is a quick and easy method of attaching Braid to Monofilment or cordage & lighter line to heavier line. It is used where the lines vary significantly in diameter size. The Albright knot is mostly used when working nylon or very slippery based lines or cordage, where a stronger, more permanent connection might be required. As it is not prone to slippage, it is also useful in attaching slippery nylon type cordage, line and rope. They make it easier to pull tight to complete the knot. Line wear can occur with this knot if worked, so it should be replaced at regular intervals.

Fishing Application
In the case of fishing practises, the Albright knot is a quick and easy method of attaching leaders or line to backing. It is commonly used to join the fly line to the fly-reel backing line e.g., tying an 80-lb. shock tippet to a 15-lb. class tippet when saltwater fishing. The Albright is relatively smooth and passes through guides when required. Some anglers coat the knot with a rubber based cement to make it even smoother and more secure.

Line Classes:                                Light to Heavy
Line types:                                    Monofilaments, super lines, fly line, cordage, rope
Retained Breaking Strength:       90% to 95%
Application:                                  Joining lines vary significantly in diameter size.
