How to Tie the FG Knot, Step by Step
One of the hottest topics among saltwater anglers these days is the FG knot. It’s a favorite among the most hardcore nearshore anglers who toss huge poppers all day for monster giant trevally — some of the world’s toughest fishing, a situation where your best knot or mine probably wouldn’t survive for long. They have a knot connecting their braid to heavy mono or fluoro leader that can go all day — in and out of the guides and straining under max drags with heavy tackle. It’s the FG knot.
Like any knot: easy to tie when you know how.
Trying to follow instructions via illustrations is nearly impossible and even FG knot videos have been tough — until now! Working with the IGFA’s Adrian Gray, Sport Fishing presents the exclusive, revolutionary Adrian Gray Simplified FG Knot. Watch the video: There’s little reason any longer not to tie the FG! With a little practice, you can do it as quickly and effortlessly as does Gray, and you won’t find a better knot for casting or jigging with braid.
