The Orvis Knot, the result of a contest put on by Orvis a number of years ago which was won with this knot by a man by the name of Larry Becker, is a remarkably strong and easy to tie knot. It is not a widely popular knot but independent tests show that it is one of the strongest tight-to-the-eye connections around. It works well with a wide range of tippet material diameters.
