How To Tie The “Knot With No Name” [Mono To Leader Knot]
By: Luke Simonds on September 26, 2018
The Knot With No Name
One of the stronger mono-to-leader connections out there is a knot that I’m not sure has a name, so we simply dubbed it the “Knot With No Name”.
Since it’s so easy to tie while also being extremely strong, this is a MUST-KNOW knot for anglers who use mono lines and need to connect to stronger mono/fluoro leaders.
It actually is the combination of two different strong knots (the Perfection Loop and the Orvis Knot) to create a sleek and strong mono-to-leader connection.
This knot is great for a few different reasons. I really like it because it is:
- Easy to tie
- Very strong
- Great for lines of very different diameters
In this article, I show you the step-by-step process to tie the Knot With No Name. You can also see a video tutorial on how to tie this knot in the article.

How To Tie The Knot With No Name
In this section, we show you how to use these two knots to make the Knot With No Name using two pieces of mono line.
Step 1: Tie A Perfection Loop At The Tag End Of Your Leader Line
Tie a Perfection Loop at the tag end of your leader line. You will attach this end to your mono mainline in later steps.
Step 2: Cut The Tag End Of The Perfection Loop
Cut the tag end of the Perfection Loop with scissors.
Step 3: Thread The Tag End Of Your Mainline Through The Perfection Loop
Take the tag end of your mono mainline and thread it through the Perfection Loop you made in the previous step. The Perfection Loop serves as the eye of a hook or lure for the next knot.
Step 4: Tie An Orvis Knot To The Perfection Loop Using The Mainline
With the mainline, tie an Orvis Knot to the Perfection Loop.
Step 5: Cut The Tag End Of Your Orvis Knot
Cut the tag end of your Orvis Knot with scissors. Your Knot With No Name is complete.
