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.

    • I'm no bird expert, but I'd like to think one of those big neon signs that lights up orange with "OPEN" on it, would help!!
    • Swap the wild bird seed for sunflower chips. Goldfinches love it!
    • Probably 10-15 years. At least.
    • At first glance, I was going to ask if the circus came to town.  LOL.    Really, there is a bird visible there in the photo.    How long has this arrangement been in place?  I ask, since it does take awhile for the birds to find the new feeders.  
    • Another summer with few birds. Anybody see any problems with this feeder assortment? I have 1 or 2 Oriole pairs when I had dozens last year. I have a couple catbirds. I have nuthatches galore like everyone. Purple finches are still around. Also have cardinals like last year. I did have 1 Indigo Bunting but no neat/unusual visitor birds even passing thru. More red-wing black birds than before. No hummers. No goldfinches. No grosbeaks.  I've read house sparrows chase things away and I do have a quite a few but not infested by any means. Lots of blue Jays. Very few of the assorted bigger blackbirds. Haven't seen a cat prowling around hardly all year either. Feeders are kept well stocked (safflower,thistle, premium wild bird seed, black sunflower, grape jelly, & hummer juice) and clean with fresh seed but none of my favorite birds I mentioned. That PVC pole hasn't had a squirrel figure it out for at least 2 years and the couple that did aren't talking. Is this too much too close together? Any suggestions?
    • Dang...  I just passed through Ely on Sunday and glanced at the store, thinking about him.  Quite the character.  No more rides in the Pope Mobile. 🙁   Rest in Peace Sir Maki.   Thanks for posting @leech~~
    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
    • There are other houses on the pond, nobody has a dock though.  I don't think my neighbors would care, I kinda ran it by the guy on one side.  Because the county plat map has the pond divvied up between 8 different properties on the street, I would think that technically taking a kayak around the pond would be trespassing.  Nobody has complained though and during the winter there were skaters and people running their dogs all over it and nobody asked me for permission.  Not that I care at all.   I don't need a Hatfield / McCoy problem with the neighbors, but at the same time it's my property.  If I had a McMansion on Crystal Lake in Bville nobody could or would complain about me putting a dock out.
