re: Learning (and retaining) how to tie proper knots


I was on a boat yesterday and only 2 out of 6 could tie and rig lines for snapper fishing. The owner of the boat and myself had a long day!!

The owner of the boat is one of our vendors and I was supposed to be on-board just as a client enjoying myself. I couldn't just sit there and watch grown men wait for the captain to get a chance to re-rig their lines after breaking off. I turned into a deck hand I guess you could say. I didn't mind but I can not understand how someone goes through life not knowing a few simple yet practical knots.

Butterfly knot is also good. We use it when camping. String para cord between trees and have multiple loops to hang crap from.

Although it has a grisly history the noose is a great knot that provides a sliding loop easily released after applying a load.

A noose is fantastic for connecting a rope to a hitch ball for pulling shite. Very easy to tie and untie with big rope.

As horrible as it looked I used to have a long big rope with a noose in one end at all times on the farm

Worse thing about it is it takes so much rope to tie a good one. It takes a long arse rope to double noose for pulling out stuck trucks n shite.

It is a length costly knot.
