Know Your Knots
All anglers know that fishing is an art. From the way in which you cast to the ties on your line. Intricate and artistic, the loops you create on your fishing line can make all the difference. Here are the nine knots Fly Fisherman Magazine suggests you perfect when getting out on the water.
