How to tie an Albright Knot
Line to Line — Equal sizes
The Albright Knot was created for tarpon fishing in the 1950s and is used to tie two different diameters of line together.
Step by step
- Start by forming a loop in the wire or heavy mono then pass the tag end of the main line through the loop.
- Lay the tag end behind the wire or mono loop and make tight wraps down toward the bend of the loop.
- Pass the tag end through the loop in the same direction that it first came out of the loop.
- Pull equally on all four legs of the loop and the main fishing line. Use your fingers to help push the wraps toward the end of the loop.
- Trim the tag ends.
