Albright Knot

  • KNOT NAME : Albright Knot
  • KNOT Description : The Albright Knot is one of the most reliable connections for joining lines of greatly unequal diameters or different materials (including mono to braided or single strand wire). It is easy to tie and should be in everyones arsenal of knots.

Welcome to The FinTalk Fishing Knots details page for tying the Albright Knot. Follow the directions step by step and practice tying any particular knot over and over until you have it mastered. Learn it and practice it so when you are faced with changing lures or rigs in the middle of a hot bite you can quickly tie your knot and get your line back in the water. Sometimes the bite is only on for a little while so getting caught up with tying and re-tying rigs can cost valuable fish time. Remember not only should you be able to tie your knot fairly quick but you should be able to tie your fishing knot properly fairly quick. Nothing is worse than having what you know was a big daddy fish and losing him only to wind up your line to see your knot failed. It is enough to ruin your day, especially if the fishing is slow. So enjoy learning to tie these knots and for more detailed instructions check out "Fishing Knots and Rigs' by Geoff Wilson.

Butt: The thick part of the leader. The butt of a leader is attached to the fishing line.
Tag or Tag End: The working end, the part of the line where the knot is tied.
Standing Part: The main part of the line that is fixed and under tension. Such as the part of line that is on the reel.
Standing End : The short area at the end of the standing part of the line.
Working End: The part of the line used actively in tying a knot. The opposite of the standing end.
End: A loop is a closed curved line, formed by bringing the tag end back and alongside the standing part, or a knot that creates a loop.
Tippet: The end of a leader to which the lure is attached. The tippet can be the end of a leader or an added line to the end of a leader.
Turns or Wraps: A turn or wrap is one complete revolution of line around another.
Overhand Knot: The foundation for many other knots. (A Granny Knot before it is pulled tight)

Knot Instructions
STEP 1. Bend a loop in the tag end of the heavier line and hold between thumb and forefinger of left hand. Insert the tag end of the lighter line through loop from the top.
STEP 2. Slip tag end of lighter line under your thumb and pinch it tightly against the heavier strands of the loop. Wrap the first turn of the lighter line over itself and continue wrapping the round end of the loop. Take at least 12 turns with the lighter line around all three strands.
STEP 3. Insert tag end of the lighter line through end of loop from the bottom. It must enter and leave the loop on same side.
STEP 4. With the thumb and forefinger of the left hand, slide coils of the lighter line towards the end of the loop, stop 1/8" from end of loop. Using pliers, pull tag end of lighter line tight to keep coils from slipping off loop.
STEP 5. With your left hand still holding the heavier line pull on the standing part of the lighter line. Pull the tag end of the lighter line and the standing part a second time. Pull the standing part of the heavy mono and the standing part of the light line. Trim both tag ends.
