Fishing Knots For Attaching Line To Line

There are two top grade knots used to join one line to another, where these are approximately of the same thickness. These are the Blood Knot and the Hangman's Knot - also called the Uni Knot by the International Game Fish Association.

Where there diameters are very dissimilar, either the Surgeon's Knot should be used, or the thinner line should be doubled where the knot is formed.

Blood Knot

Lie the ends of the two lines against each other, overlapping about 15cm.
Take 5 turns around one line with the end of the other, and bring the end back where it's held between the two lines.
Repeat by taking 5 turns around the other line, bringing the end back between the two lines. These two ends should then project in opposite directions.
Work the knot up into loops, taking care that the two ends do not slip out of position.
Draw the knot up tightly.

Uni-Knot Version For The Hangman's Knot

A better join can be made using one of the Hangman's Knots, known to the International Game Fish Association fisherman as the Uni-Knot.

This is a knot used for attaching the line to the spool of the reel.

Overlap the two lines for about 15cm.
Using one end, form a circle that overlies both lines.
Pass the end six times around the two lines.
Pull the end tight to draw the knot up into shape.
Repeat the process using the end of the other line.
Pull both lines to slide the two knots together.

Surgeon's Knot

Earlier mention was made that if the two lines to be joined vary greatly in their diameters, the lesser line may be doubled at the knot, or the Surgeon's Knot may be used. In the latter case, it will probably be necessary to have one of the lines rolled on a spool, or perhaps wrapped on a temporary card, so that it may be passed through the loop.

Lay the two lines against each other, overlapping about 22.5 cm.
Working the two lines as one, tie an Overhand Knot. It will be necessary to pull one line (say the leader) completely through this loop.
Pull the leader through this loop again.
Pass the other end through the loop.
The formed knot can now be worked into shape.
