Fishing Knots Guide

There are hundreds of fishing knots that people can use when they are trying to tie a knot on their fishing pole.

While many of these knots are simple, some require practice. Many people learn how to tie these fishing knots at summer camp or from those that they fish with.

Basic knot tying skills are all that will be needed when fishing in most situations. Some people create elaborate knots because they enjoy the challenge of tying these knots.

The basic knot it the slip knot. This knot is done by simply crossing over two pieces and string and pulling them together.

One can find more complex fishing knots on the Internet or in books that can be found in bookstores, fishing supply stores, or libraries. Learning from other people is also a good way to learn how to tie fishing knots. Sometimes seeing things first hand will help a person figure out how to the knot more easily than from a book.

Many people are better at learning by practicing first hand. Once a person has learned how to tie a few knots, they should use them when they go fishing so that they do not forget how to use them. These knots can be used to tie flies, lures, weights, and floaters. 

Fishing knots are used for many different reasons. They can be used to hold hooks on a line, or keep fish from escaping. Knowing how to tie a knot properly can help a person become better at fishing. Once the knot is in place, a person is ready to fish. Fishing knots can be used for different types of fishing and for other reasons as well.

Securing items on top of a car or in a trunk by using the correct knot can help when transporting items from one place to the next.
