Tippets: The Best Knots, Telluride MountainFilm Festival

May 23, 2016 By: Erin Block

  • From backing to tippet, creating a seamless line from the reel to fish can be difficult. Ross Purnell distills important information about tying the best knots for fly fishing in this recent article. “The reality is that knot tying is a skill with some degree of inherent satisfaction, just like casting or tying flies,” he writes. “While tying a Bimini twist, or a Duncan loop, isn’t as exciting as landing a large tarpon, or fooling a brown trout sipping from the surface, it’s all part of the wonderful, complex world of fly fishing.” Via Fly Fisherman.
  • The 2016 Telluride MountainFilm Festival will feature three official selections highlighting fish and fly fishing: “Kamchatka Steelhead Project” directed by Travis Rummel and Grayson Schaffer, “The Super Salmon” directed by Ryan Peterson, and “Urban Circus Fish” directed by Chris Kitchen and Sam Pope.
