Fishing Knots, probably the least glamourous part of our sport, but one of the most essential. A single fishing knot is all that holds you connected to your fish. It is the weakest link in the chain, but how weak will depend on how well you have tied the knot. Use these animated knot sequences to improve your tying.

We practice our casting, spend our money buying the best equipment and we sacrifice our time getting up early in the wee hours of the morning to catch the best tides. We learn all kinds of techniques for manipulating lures and baits and flies so that fish can't possibly resist them. We even spend hours dreaming of just going fishing and catching a personal best fish. It will all turn to tears very quickly if we don't PRACTICE tying our fishing knots. You will then be able to fish with CONFIDENCE, knowing which knot to tie for a given line diametre, for a line to line connection or to get the most life out of your lure.
