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.

Sloatsburg Sculpin

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Behold the plundering marauder Sloatsburg Sculpin low water version and perpetrator of the Rape of Pineville and the Sodomy of the Short Bridge, what with a vile body of swine’s wool, an ill crafted feather wing, and its foul stench of Krazy Glue, the mere sight of this unwanted fetus will induce fear and nausea in every Gut and Gill goon who isn’t already lying in a pool of his own vomit and excrement.

Slightly evil ..
