|We thought it appropriate
to feature one of the easiest but most useful and practical of all fishing
knots, courtesy of The Waterproof Book of Fishing
Knots. This can also be used as a line joiner, as detailed in the book,
plus there's a host of other useful knots.
Pass plenty of line through
eye, double back against main line and form a loop as shown.
Wind tag end over doubled line and through loop five times. Less wrap for
heavy, more for light line).
Moisten well, draw knot firm but not tight, by pulling tag end.
Using fingers, slide knot down to the eye. Tighten and trim.
