How To Tie Fishing Knots
Knowing how to properly tie a fishing
knot can mean the difference between landing that big redfish you have
been fishing for all day, or losing the fish because of a poorly tied
knot. When a fish strikes, it creates a considerable amount of stress
from the force of the strike. The knot tied at the swivel, lure, or hook
can easily break if it is tied incorrectly, or it can unwind if it is
tied wrong. A knot is the weakest point in the fishing line, but a properly
tied fishing knot will withstand almost any strain that a fish will induce
on the line.
I have included a few how-to demonstrations
on tying a few popular fishing knots. Just select the knot you want to
learn to tie from the menu, and the link will take you to the how-to page.
The knots are animated. Each animation will show you the correct way
to tie the fishing knot.
