Very nice site onejohndog...going to have to have a go myself. Being able to tie knots with names is something I've always wanted to do. It might help me masquerade as not entirely useless

I learnt half of them at scouts years ago, still use one or two of them still. Brings back some nice memories getting a cross bar ride front my dad to and from the scout hut!......and maybe some not nice memories, numb bum

cool site onejohndog, couldnt see that knot that happens when you cross lines with two other anglers, in the dark, whilst trying to land a silver eel though

Or watch a bit of Ray Mears, or read Bushcraft or the like.

It looks like the Tollesbury Knots resource isn't live anymore. Here's a video knots resource though: http://www.manitouboats.com/blog/knots-yeah-more-knots-with-video/
