Haven’t tied an Albright knot before( at least , not that I can recall) and have had no reason to learn over the past few seasons as , recently- as a time saving measure - I’ve been purchasing reels with line and backing prespooled. However , I was prepping my gear for the upcoming salmon run and noticed nicks in one part of my flyline so I excused that small segment and retired and secured to the backing . After watching a YouTube vid on how to tie an Albright knot , I struggled w it a bit , knots coming out perpendicular rather than parallel and in line with “ the pull”. This , I finally resolved when figuring out that you have to make a final pass up and through the loop when securing. However , when pulling the knot taut , I noticed some of the flyline coating ripped off. Is that due to the flyline being old or is that going to happen inevitably no matter what ?
