Development of Jack's Knot
Jack's Knot has been more than 50 years in the making.
"I have been fly fishing since 1958."
"The Jack's Knot is not an adaptation of the Pitzen Knot. (The outcome of the two knots are totally different.) I can tie the Jack's knot faster, using less tippet, and it is a smaller knot than the Pitzen knot." It is as strong or stronger than the Pitzen Knot depending on what material you use.
