An angler must master the knots to tie the fishing line to the string. This knot is very important for anglers. Besides the course to strengthen the bond on the fishing line so that it does not come loose when struck by hunted fish, it is also easier when installing the fishing gear in low light conditions or at night. In addition, so that the anglers more quickly install the fishing device when the position of the hunted fish is seen. Here are the types of knots (knots) commonly used by anglers:

types of fishing knots

Centauri Knots

These knots can be used on variations in the diameter of the strings because it can withstand small friction and more nor does it change the senate. Suitable for small hooks, rings, and swivels.

  1. Insert the ends of the strings in the hook or swivel and make the arrangement as shown in the picture. First pass the end of the string behind the main string. String crosses are held between the thumb and index finger of the left hand.
  2. Repeat the first step and the second cross is also held between the thumb and index finger of the left hand.
  3. Repeat again, the ends of the strings are passed behind the main strings and crosses are held between the thumb and index finger. Many anglers use two turns instead of three, this will result in a weak knot.
  4. Now insert the end of the string through the center of the three loops you have made and shape the knot by carefully pulling the end of the string opposite the hook or the swivel.
  5. The knot is formed, the loop is stretched, lowering the knot towards the hook or swivel.
  6. The finished knot must lock the hook. With the end of the string pointing at the leader.

Uni Knot

  1. Put the strings in a hook or at least 15cm and round two parallel strings. Bring the tip of the cord back to the circle in front of the hook or bait.
  2. Make 6 turns with the end of the senate surrounded by double strings. Pass the end through the loop. Hold the double string at a point where through the hook and pull the end of the string to straighten the loop.
  3. Pull the base to launch the knot in the direction opposite the hook.
  4. Continue pulling the knot until it is tight. Cut the end of the string.

Cat’s Paw Knot

  1. Slide the end of the double-stringed loop through the eye of the wig. Turn the end of the loop half a turn to get a single winding between the loop and the twisted eye.
  2. Pass the loop with a loop above the swirl. Grasp the end of the loop, add the legs of the double rope leader with one hand. Let the swivel slide to the other end of the loop that has been formed.
  3. Keep holding the loop and bending with your other hand to rotate the coil through the center in both loops, at least six times.
  4. Continue to hold the leader legs double tightly, but release the end of the loop. Pull the swivel and wrap it into a stitch.
  5. To pull the knot firmly, pinch the swivel with pliers and press it towards the swivel with your fingers, while still holding the crown of the leader pull tight.

Snell Knot

  1. Insert the leader through the hook, extend 2 to 5 cm through the hook. Insert another part of the leader through the hook in the opposite direction of the hook. Hold the hook and lead between the thumb and index finger of the left hand. The leader hangs down the hook on a large loop.
  2. take part in the large, low loop that is closed on the hook and wrap it over the hook and both ends of the leader towards the hook.
  3. Wrap it for 7 or 8 turns and hold the loop with your left hand. Grasp the end of the leader through which the hook hole is held with the right hand and pull slowly and strongly. Hold the rotation with the left hand. If the knot is almost tight, pull it against the hook. Shorten the handle of the hook by using pliers. Pull the end and the base of the strong string, the knot is finished.

Clinch Knot

  1. Pass the strings through the hook or swivel. Turn back double and make 5 turns around the base of the knuckle. Hold the roll in place, insert the end of the string through the first loop above the hook, then through the large loop shown.
  2. Grasp the end of the string and pull the base of the knuckle upward. Pay attention to the turns in a spiral, not arranged with each other. pull opposite the hook, cut the end of the line.

Trilene Knot

Trilene knot is a multipurpose bond used to connect swivels, safety pins, and artificial baits. This knot is unique and easy to tie to be a strong, reliable connection up to 85-90% of the strength of the strings. Initial mono winding through the hook provides cushioning protection for added safety.

  1. Insert the end of the string through the hook or bait and double back through the hook a second time.
  2. Wrap around the base of the kenur 5 or 6 times.
  3. Insert the ends of the strings back between the hook and the coil as shown.
  4. Pull tight and cut the ends of the strings.

Marshall knot

This method was introduced by Frank Marshall, writer and angler from Australia. This knot is simple to tie in the dark and is strong enough in various situations.

  1. A loop at the end of the string, tie a knot 2. through the loop through the hook.
  2. Go through the loop through the hook.
  3. Go through the loop entirely on the hook and through the ends of the strings through the loop well.
  4. End the overhand knot and pull the noose tight around the hook.

Thumb Knot

  1. Lalui senar pada mata kail dan buat sebuah loop sehingga kail tergantung pada loop. Jepit persilangan diantara ibu jari dan tangan kiri.
  2. Mulai buat liIitan pada ibu jari kiri dan lingkarkan dengan ujung senar.
  3. Buat tiga liIitan, dikerjakan mulai dari dasar ibu jari kearah kuku ibu jari.
  4. Dorong ujung senar kembali dibawah tiga liIitan ini sepanjang ibu jari anda, dorong semuanya ke arah dasar ibu jari anda.
  5. Amankan bagian ujung senar berlawanan ibu jari kiri anda dengan jari tengah. Kemudian ambil loop pada kail pada jari kanan dan sisipkan pada ibu jari anda secara berurutan.
  6. Akhiri simpul dengan menarik loop berlawanan dengan ujung senar.

Flemish Eye Knot

Flemish Eye is a knot to tie a rope that uses wire/nickel steel (7X7) in the eye of a hook or swivel. In general, its function is to increase the strength of the knot tied to the hook or swivel. This knot is very useful to secure and compensate for the pull of very strong fish such as tuna, wahu, mackerel and marlin.

  1. First, insert the clamp/sleeve with the appropriate size into the wire.
  2. Insert the hook and make an overhand knot on the hook.
  3. Add one or more turns, which becomes an overhand node with two turns, not one loop.
  4. Pass the end of the wire through the clamp along the base of the wire.
  5. Launch the Flemish Eye knot toward the hook, launch the clamp towards the hook and then clamp the clamp with the forceps.
  6. Cut the ends of the wire and the hook or let the short end of the wire be glued to the base of the wire to avoid getting hurt by the splinters.
