Tying the Rapala Knot

Fishing Buzz

This is a great knot for places where it’s safe to fish with lures without a wire trace. The open loop attachment allows far more free movement of the lure and restricts the action far less than other knots that are tight to the lure attachment point. We really like the way that “Gettin’ Knotty with Mike” use a huge lure and rope, so that the knot is very easy to see.
