Using the Uni-Knot to Join Two Lines

Step 1

Overlap about 12 inches of the ends of two lines. Form a Uni-Knot circle with the tag end of line "A".

Step 2

Wrap line "A" five (5) times to form a Uni-Knot around line "B".

Step 3

Snug the knot by gently pulling on both ends of line "A" with enough tension to close the wraps, but not so tight that it actually grips Line "B".

Step 4

Form a new Uni-Knot circle with the tag end of line "B" and wrap line "B" five (5) times to form a Uni-Knot around line "A". (Use only four turns for 60-, 80- or 100-pound test monofilament.) Use 8-10 wraps when using braided line.

Step 5


Gently pull line "B" with one hand and line "A" with the other to slide the two Uni-Knots together until they jame — then pull tight. Then tighten the wraps around the standing lines by firmly pulling the tag ends of each Uni-Knot.
