How to Tie a Turle Knot

The Turle Knot is traditionally used in fly fishing.

The Turle Knot is traditionally used in fly fishing, to tie an up-eye hook to the tippet or leader. Because the line enters the front of the hook eye, with the knot behind the eye, it delivers a straight pull along the hook shank, and can be beneficial with any up-eye hook.
