Fishing Knots and knot tying instruction

A knot is nothing more than a series of wraps and loops in a line that results in a strong connection when tightened. These directions refer to the end of the line, which goes to the hook or lure, as the "tag end" and the long end of the line, which goes to the reel, as the "standing line."

The Grinner Knot - This is a multi purpose knot that is more securely clinched than it's relative blood knot. It's use is attaching swivels, lures, and hooks to the main line. I use it to tie snelled hooks to a swivel.
