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.

    • You can turn an old refrigerator into a pellet smoker....      
    • I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40" last winter and ended up giving it to a friend of mine to have at his cabin. They are fine, don't get me wrong but I just wasn't happy with the ribs I made in there as opposed to a charcoal smoker. It is ironic that Leech made the comment about a vertical pellet smoker needing to be refilled often because that is one of the things I didn't like about my MES. Maybe Leech's Char Broil has a bigger wood chip hopper but the MES had to be filled about every 20 minutes to keep smoke rolling.   I'm not against electric smokers and if that is what I had started out on I would probably still be using it but I found that instead of having a minimum of 3 pieces of grilling equipment to store and maintain, I can do everything I need to do with just a pellet grill and still have the ease of set it and forget it like an electric smoker. If I needed a very large cooking space I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of those Pit Boss verticals even if I ended up changing out the controller for something with better temp control.
    • A local company here, AEM mapping, has completed mapping the lower basin of lake winnipeg, from winnipeg beach across to the east side, and down to the mouth of the red river. The lower red river from Lockport to the mouth has also been mapped. The structure they found, and the detail is astounding and will be a game changer, especially for folks coming up and have a limited amount of time to fish.  The red is available through hummingbird right now, the AEM maps chips of the red and lake winnipeg are compatable with lowrance units only. A full list of compatable units can be found on their site.  Chips will be available mid December, pricing will be announced shortly.
    • I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.    
    • and lets not overlook the ever present found hound!!!!!!!!
    • Like the rolling cabinet. Looks like a nice storage area for wood chips, scrappers, tin foil and all the other gizmos needed for grilling and smoking. And gets the smoker up so you don't have to bend down to fill it. 🙂
    • My new set up. Got it mid-summer from a friend who hardly used it. So far I have done ribs, loin, crappies, and eggs. And pickles 2 times. excellent on a burger!  
    • 😩😨 i got an electric smoker FREE!!!!!!!!!! i need to get my arse to using it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ya a couple of stinkers the last two games, one thing that was nice about last year is we finally kicked the large and extended slumps, lets hope to see that again and put some points up. 
    • I bought a Charbroil electric. Really like it. I got the stand for it and put a wheel set on to roll it around. It's got a remote too so you can sit and watch the game inside and still keep an eye on heat, internal meat temp and time and make changes if needed.  I filled the wood chip holder 2 times in the 8hrs the brisket was smoking. 🙂
