Improved Blood Knot

from rio products

This film shows how to tie the Improved Blood Knot; a very strong knot for joining two bits of tippet/leader together. Easy to see, and with clear directions and some top tips, this is one of the best knot films out there. In addition, this film finishes with a laboratory test that breaks the knot under a controlled environment - illustrating the relative knot strength.The knot tested in this film was tied in a piece of 10lb RIO Steelhead/Salmon tippet material.
