Help with line tying!

Recommended Posts

Anyone know a simple way to connect two lines? I have been all over the internet trying various two line knots, but I am not having any success with them. Any secrets? I guess I would have never made it in the Navy.

Keep in mind that the will vary depending on the lines yu're tying. I just got done rigging some rattle reels attaching braided to flourocarbon. I use arbor knots for tying 2 different size lines.

Are you tying a leader to your main line? If so: try this: lay approx 12" of your two lines side by side together, then make a big loose over hand knot and pull the loose ends through and pass through again.

It helps to lube the knot in your mouth as you pull the knot tight.( the friction of dry lines will make the knot weak especially with light line) You'll need to trim the ends with a clipper. I don't know what the knot is called.

This is a knot I use all the time for tying tippets to tapered fly leaders, so it works well with different size lines.

great site PJ4 - so the knot I've been using is called the surgeons knot. Excellent splicing knot. much easier to tie than the blood knot- but they're all hard when you can't feel your half-frozen fingertips.

I've been a knot-o-phile since BoyScouts.

According to the knots in the above link, I use the "Uni knot's verion of the Hangman's knot" It works great for tying mono to super line. You get much better feel using a knot like this and keeping a swivel out of the mix!

Thebigdipper's knot suggestion is the best. It's easy and holds strong. THe blood knot is a pain to tie. I recommened the SURGEONS KNOT and that is the knot he described.

Go to www.ask.com
Type in Palomar knot look at the first 2 sites they both have real good directions.
It's not called a palomar knot but it is there under connecting 2 lines.
Hope this helps.

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
