King Sling Fishing Knot

King Sling fishing knot, have you ever heard of this one? We have that one and a whole lot more for you to check out and learn how to tie. Some obscure knots and some very popular knots for salt and fresh water including fly fishing knots.

Welcome to The FinTalk Fishing Knots details page for tying the King Sling Knot. Follow the directions step by step and practice tying any particular knot over and over until you have it mastered. Learn it and practice it so when you are faced with changing lures or rigs in the middle of a hot bite you can quickly tie your knot and get your line back in the water. Sometimes the bite is only on for a little while so getting caught up with tying and re-tying rigs can cost valuable fish time. Remember not only should you be able to tie your knot fairly quick but you should be able to tie your fishing knot properly fairly quick. Nothing is worse than having what you know was a big daddy fish and losing him only to wind up your line to see your knot failed. It is enough to ruin your day, especially if the fishing is slow. So enjoy learning to tie these knots and for more detailed instructions check out "Fishing Knots and Rigs' by Geoff Wilson.

Then take a look at this book "The Complete Book of Fishing Knots & Rigs" written by Geoff Wilson. The book offers an extensive list of knots and rigs which have been brilliantly illustrated by master angler Geoff Wilson.

Butt: The thick part of the leader. The butt of a leader is attached to the fishing line.
Tag or Tag End: The working end, the part of the line where the knot is tied.
Standing Part: The main part of the line that is fixed and under tension. Such as the part of line that is on the reel.
Standing End : The short area at the end of the standing part of the line.
Working End: The part of the line used actively in tying a knot. The opposite of the standing end.
End: A loop is a closed curved line, formed by bringing the tag end back and alongside the standing part, or a knot that creates a loop.
Tippet: The end of a leader to which the lure is attached. The tippet can be the end of a leader or an added line to the end of a leader.
Turns or Wraps: A turn or wrap is one complete revolution of line around another.
Overhand Knot: The foundation for many other knots. (A Granny Knot before it is pulled tight)


The King Sling Knot


An easy to tie end loop knot primarily as a connection for crank baits.


This is one of the strongest, safest loop forming knots in the fisherman's arsenal. Learn to tie this easy loop knot and you won't loose fish to failed loops. I have tied this loop knot in monofilament up to 50 lb. Breaking strength with a diameter of 0.028" with no problems getting the knot to tighten.

Fishing Knot Details
Knot Instructions
Form a double loop at the end of the line by folding the end of the line back on itself forming a loop. Then fold the loop back on itself forming a second loop. Grasp this second loop with your forceps. See Figure 1
Now rotate the second loop end and the forceps around the double line three times. See Figure 2
Next, push the second loop and the forceps holding the second loop through the first loop. Then release and withdraw the forceps leaving the second loop extending through the first loop. See Figure 3. Note: you can also reverse the procedure by placing the closed forceps through the first loop and then grasping the second loop, wrapping the forceps and grasped loop around the standing line and tag three times. Finally, draw the forceps out of the first loop along with the second loop.
Wet the knot and using one hand to pull the single loop and the other to pull both the standing line and the tag end start to draw the knot tight. Once the knot forms, even out the knot loops on each end of the knot itself. See Figure 4
Finally, complete drawing the knot tight. Clip the tag end leaving a short stub and the loop knot is complete. See Figure 5 below. Note that in Figure 5 the tag has not yet been cut off.
