The Gaspé Twist

Monday, January 28th, 2013

This is the knot Claude Bernard on the Bonaventure showed us last June.

The Gaspé Twist is an extension of the proper Turle Knot (traditionally used to tie a tippet to an up-eye or down-eye fishing fly). The knot as shown here was taught by Claude Bernard, on the Bonaventure River, Gaspé. Monsieur Claude Bernard is the President of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Fly Fishing Museum (, as well as a resident, expert, and fly fishing guide on the Bonaventure River for many years.

I am not sure if the Gaspé Twist adds any further protection from slippage to the standard Turle Knot. Interestingly, it is quite difficult to remove the tied knot from the fly, once the knot has been placed under stress. At least two cuts are required to easily free the knot from the eye of a salmon hook.
