I know of two ways to tie a double turle, and while neither has failed me yet, I'd prefer to settle on the more "accepted" version of the knot for insurance.
(in no particular order)
Version 1: Put leader thru fly, make single main loop in leader, secure main loop with a looped double overhand knot (tightened), pull fly thru, tighten
Version 2: Put leader thru fly, make doubled main loop in leader, secure doubled main loop with looped single overhand knot (tightened), pull fly thru, tighten
Which one of these is an imposter??? My current sources give me mixed reports....

I've emailed an illustration to your hotmail account

Thanks for the diagram of the "Figure 8 Turle." So that makes three options for a Turle knot. This newest version most resembles version (1) above, but is certainly unique and unlike any I've seen. Now if I could just get my fingers used to tying it ...
