A fishing 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 fishing 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."

  • All fishing knots should be wetted carefully before tightening the line! Failure to do this will weaken the knot severely because of the heat generated by friction.
