Non Slip Mono Knot

Welcome to The FinTalk Fishing Knots details page for tying the Non Slip Mono 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.

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)


Non Slip Mono Knot


The Non-Slip Mono Loop doesn't slip and often tests close to 100 percent of the unknotted line strength. For lines testing from 8X to six pounds, use seven turns, five turns for lines in the eight to twelve pound class; four turns for fifteen to forty-pound line; three turns for fifty or sixty pound and two turns for lines heavier than that.


This knot is from Practical Fishing Knots by Mark Sosin and Lefty Kreh - in our opinion the best book written on fishing knots. You can purchase this book by clicking the knot book links at the top of the page.

Fishing Knot Details
Knot Instructions
**IMPORTANT** The Non-Slip Mono Knot is extremely strong and as the name says, does not slip like some of the other loop knots. This knot has been tested to close to 100% of the line strength. It is very important that you follow the wrap counts for maximizing its strength. 8X to 6lb test: 7 wraps. 8 to 12lbs: 5 wraps. 15lb to 40lb test: 4 wraps. 50-60lb test: 3 wraps, and up to 120lb test: 2 wraps.
Step 1. Take your line and form an over-hand knot, leaving approximately 8 inches. Pass the tag end through the eye of the hook. Bring the line back through the overhand knot the same side it came out. Make your wraps based upon the numbers above.
Step 2. After all the wraps are completed pass the line back through the over hand knot the same way it came out in the last step.
Step 3. Moisten the knot with your mouth, and while holding the hook in your right-hand pull slowly. As the knot tightens, take the standing line in your left hand and pull your hands apart finishing the knot. Finally, trim the ends.
