Fly fishing knot - No Slip Loop

We had some request for help with knots at Putah Creek fishing and wine event. Here are a couple videos that should help you learn them. Remember "practice makes permanent" so practice them a bit right now in preparation for Spring and summer fly fishing applications.

Hint: Always moisten your knots before you pull them tight to preserve knot strength.
