Know Your Knots

Don’t be confused by knots. Yes, it is important to tie knots properly, so that you will not lose a big fish when you hook one, but learn these three easy-to-tie knots and you will safely land that monster when it does come your way.

1. The four-turn GRINNER knot is best for tying line to eyed hooks and swivels, or for joining two sections of line together.
2. The figure-of-eight LOOP knot is perfect for connecting hooklinks to main (reel) line.

TOP TIPS
Always ‘lick & lock’ by moistening your knot with saliva before tightening it.
Practice tying knots with thicker line than you would normally fish with.

Four-turn Grinner Knot
Step01: Pass your line through the back of your hook or through the swivel

Step02: Create a loop over the top of your line as so.

Step03: Pass your tag end over your mainline and back through the loop.

Step04: Repeat this process until you have passed through the loop four times.

Step05: moisten the whole lot with your saliva to prevent damage.

Step 06: Pull down slowly on the tag end to tighten the knot.

Step07: Tease the knot down the mainline until it is tight and secure against the hook or swivel eye.

Step08: Trim the tag end and you have the completed Grinner knot.

 

Figure-of-eight Loop Knot
Step01: Fold the end of your the tag end and main line over to form a loop


Step02: Fold this over to create a second loop, as shown.

Step03: Fold the end loop over the tag and main line.

Step04: Pass this through the first loop that you created.

Step05: Moisten the knot with saliva to prevent damage.

Step06: Pull down tight, trim the tag end and you have a super strong loop knot!
