knots

Lay the 2 lines side by side.

knots

Gripping a loose end twist both lines together

knots

Pass the free ends through the centre twist in opposite directions

knots

Wet the knot (as with all monofilament knots), pull tight and trim as shown above

knots

Double up the line and then form a loop.

knots

Pass the end through the loop to form a knot.

knots

Pass the end through the loop again, forming a double knot.

knots

Wet the knot (as with all monofilament knots) and pull tight forming a small loop about 3/4 of an inch long. Trim off the excess line.

knots

Pass the line through the eye of the hook or swivel twice.

knots

Form a large loop and holding this loop and the eye between your thumb and forefinger, pass the end through the loop.

knots

Continue to feed the end through the loop, five times in total.

knots

Wet the knot and pull tight. Trim off the excess line.

knots

Thread the line through the eye.

knots

Wrap the loose end at least six times around the line.

knots

Pass the end through the loop closest to the eye.

knots

Wet, pull tight and trim.

knots

Begin by tying a small (1/4 inch) overhand loop at the end of about 18 inches of braid, trimming the end tight. Thread it through the eye of the hook.

knots

Hold the loop at a distance from the bend of the hook equal to the size of the bait to be used. Whip the hair rig to the back of the hook.

knots

Continue whipping a total of 7 times and then feed the end through the eye.

knots

Pull the rig tight and add a drop of superglue to give it added strength.

knots

Tie a double overhand loop into both of the lines to be joined.

knots

Pass one loop through the other.

knots

Thread the end of the shorter line (or hook end of a hooklength) through the inner loop.

knots

Pull this line all the way through the loop, feeding the double overhand knot through as well. Arrange the knot as shown above and pull tight. To undo this knot simply grip the loops and push them together and unthread the hooklength.

knots

Begin by forming a loop and passing it through the eye.

knots

Form a knot as shown above with the looped end of the line.

knots

Now open up the loop a little and pass the hook or swivel through the loop.

knots

Wet the knot and pull tight, trimming off the excess line.

knots

Lay a loop of line over the bend of the hook. Grip the loop together with the bend between your forefinger and thumb.

knots

This is the tricky part - wrap the short end ten times around the line and hook shank. This can be wrapped either from the spade down to the bend or, as shown above, from the bend to the spade. The second is probably the easiest to master.

knots

Swapping your grip to reveal the loop and bend, pass the free end of line through the loop.

knots

Pull the main line and free end equally to tighten the knot. Wet the line and dress the knot before final tightening. It is essential to ensure the line comes from the inside of the hook over the front of the spade. Trim off the loose end.

knots

Lay a loop of line over the main line and hold it between your thumb and forefinger.

knots

Wind six turns around both lines.

knots

Thread the end through the loop.

knots

Pull tight and trim, leaving 2 inches of line after the knot.

knots

Double about 2 feet of line, form a loop and pass the doubled end through it.

knots

Continue passing the end through the loop, 4 times in total.

knots

Wet the knot and pull tight so a loop of about 1 foot is created and trim the loose end.

knots

Cut the loop off centre so that further knots on the ends do not foul each other.
Note :- If you are joining to separate lines together then this loop shortcut method of tying is not usable. In such a case the 2 lines are laid side by side (as opposed to simply looping the line) and the above steps performed. There will be no loop to cut at the end as two separate lines have been used throughout.
