There are, according to Google… over 16,900,000 websites discussing fly fishing,

YouTube shows over 74,900 videos dealing with the same subject and the iPhone and Android phones even have applications available, assuming you take them to the river!

So, for anyone with Internet access, finding information (and misinformation!) on the subject of fishing knots is pretty easy.

However, we have come across a few websites that seem particularly helpful, and they’re listed below.
