HOW TO TIE THE DOUBLE-BLOOD KNOT

Double blood knot

by Trout & Salmon |

This is basically two blood knots tied back-to-back and it’s great for making droppers stand proud away from the main leader.

■ Overlap the two sections of line and begin to wind one around the other.

■ Continue wrapping for four or five turns then double back the tag (loose) end to tuck between the two lines where the twists begin.

■ Taking the remaining tag end repeat the twisting procedure on the opposite main line and pass the tag end through the initial opening – adjacent to the first tag end – but in the opposite direction.

■ Initially tighten the tag ends before clinching the knot tight by drawing on the two main lines. Finally, snip away the waste ends.
