Typical use Fishing


A turle knot is a knot use while fishing for tying a hook or fly to a leader. It is named after William Greer Turle, a 19th-century English angler who popularized the knot but did not claim to have invented it. It has sometimes, wrongly, been referred to as the turtle knot.[1]
