No matter what type of fishing your doing anytime you are around the water it is important to know how to tie correct knots. Whether you’re tying a hook or lure or are securing a boat the proper knot and ability to tie them can make all the difference in the world. Knot tying is a skill that is good to be mastered in whatever you do not just fishing but if you don’t know how to tie knots properly it can often result in hooks coming loose and losing many fish. Basic knots such as the sailors knot, the slip knot and the square knot are knots everyone should know and will provide themselves practical not just in the fishing world but in everyday life.
Tying a hook properly will allow the line to stay attached to the hook without the line slipping and no matter how hard the fish fights the knot will not come undone. The line may break and the fish will get away but if the hook is tied properly the hook will stay attached to the line and increase your chances of bringing in your fish. Knowing other basic knots is helpful if you are on a boat and need to secure an item or items. On a boat, ropes are called lines and knowing how to tie down cargo or even your boat to the dock is extremely important. Knot tying is definitely a valuable skill and anyone who has been on the water long will agree.
