Longliners Fishing Knot

Longliners Fishing Knot, have you ever heard of this one? We have tying instructins for that one and a whole lot more for you to check out and learn how to tie. Check out some of the obscure knots or some very popular knots for salt and fresh water including the fly fishing knots.

Learn how to tie the Long Liners 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.

Fishing Knot Details
LongLiners Knot Instructions
STEP 1. Begin by making a loop in the heavier mainline and passing the leader through, and around one side of that loop.
STEP 2. Wind the leader down one side of the loop three times counter clockwise, then back up the other side clockwise, so that the tag and leader emerge from opposite sides at the apex of the loop.
STEP 3. Pull the wraps tightly, reducing the size of the loop. Then encircle the leader with the leader tag.
STEP 4. **A** Encircle the leader with the tag a secong time before passing the tag back through the center to form a sliding knot. **B** Close the sliding knot by pulling on the leader tag.
STEP 5. Take the heavier mainline loop in one hand and the lighter leader in the other and pull till the sliding knot is down on the apex of the loop in the heavier line.
STEP 6. Gripping the mainline either side of the loop pull the loop apart so that the leader knot locks down firmly onto the mainline.
