About the Bristol Knot

The Bristol Knot is less well known in the world of fishing knots, which might explain the origin of one of its aliases: the No Name Knot. It is a useful knot for joining two lines, even of varying type or diameter, and is often used for shock leaders or fly tippets. The Bristol Knot is designed to be tied against a loop in the standing line, and this can be used in conjunction with loop knots such as the Dropper Loop, the Bimini Twist, or the Surgeon’s Loop.
