The first tip for tying crappie flies is in regard to how tightly you tie the fly. Many fishermen make the mistake of tying the crappie fly too loosely. This usually results in the fly following off of the end of the fishing rod. As a result, the fisherman has to go back to the fishing shop and purchase some more flies before he can continue fishing.

This is extremely inconvenient and can easily be avoided if you just tie the knot tightly on the fly. You should be careful not pull too hard because then you could break the string. You should tie the string tight enough so it is snug, but make sure not to break it.

If you have more knots you have a significantly lower chance of losing your crappie fly in the water. It’s still important not to get carried away with knots. The maximum number of knots that you should make is actually three.

One of the most important things when it comes to tying Crappie flies is what you use to tie the knot. Using a strong material is the key to making sure that your line does not break when you are fishing. Many fishermen make the mistake of using an extremely weak material for their knot which results in them losing their fly each time they go fishing. These more expensive materials will cost you a little bit more money. Although, it will save you money in the long run because you will not have to spend money on additional flies.

If you are not good at tying knots then you should buy less expensive Crappie flies. The reason for this is that when you lose a knot you not lose something as valuable.
