Learn how to tie Fishing Knots?


There are many types of fishing knots and each one is used for a particular purpose. Using the link below you can watch animations of knots actually being tied. You will also read about the uses of each knot, the tying and advantages of each knot.

Below is a list of animated knots.

Depending on how you tie two lines together will determine the strength of the knot. Tying an overhand knot can weaken the line by half it's strength. You want the strongest knot possible in fishing so it is worth learning how to tie certain knots that you will be using during your time fishing.

A couple of tips worth remembering :
Before pulling the knot tight, wet it with saliva. This lubricates the lines and helps prevent damage to the line.

Once the knot is tied, trim the loose ends closely as this will help prevent the knot from catching on any snags.
