The Turle knot is often used in Salmon fly fishing with up eyed irons. The actual knot sits at the top of the hook shank behind the eye with the line coming through the eye parallel to the shank. This helps the fly swim straight in running water in effect optimizing fly presentation to the fish. The Turle knot is ideal when tying on flies with turned-up or turned-down eyes to your leader. This gives your fly good action because of the way the knot causes the leader to pull away from the hook. It can be tied with one or two wraps of an overhand knot. Step 1. Pass the leader end through the hook-eye. Take two wraps around the standing line and pass the tag end through the loops forming a simple overhand knot. Tighten it down. Step 2. Pass the fly through the large loop formed and snug it against the hook-eye. Step 3. Tighten down and trim off the excess.
