How To Tie An Albright Knot

The Albright Knot is useful in tying different types of line together (i.e. monofilament to braid) as well as different diameters.

Form an open-ended loop in the larger diameter line. Pass the backing (or smaller diameter strand) through the loop and take one turn around larger line.

 Wind the tag end of the backing around itself and the larger line loop. Take 10-12 winds, keeping them in place with left hand. Pass the backing through the loop so that it comes out on the same side it entered on.

 Slide the coils of backing together and toward the end of the loop, stopping 1/8″ from end. Take care that backing does not slide off end of larger line before tightening.

 Tighten by pulling on the tag end of the backing while holding both strands of larger line in left hand. Pliers or a hemostat can be used on tag end. With left hand still holding both ends of larger diameter line, pull on standing part of backing. Pull tag end of backing again and standing part one more time. Complete tightening by pulling only on standing parts of larger line and backing.

 Trim the tag end of larger line and backing.
