Nice to remind the oldsters

of the new sources of knowledge on their computers. Bookmarked a couple.

Reminds me I've used the improved clinch knot for years fishing and hunting. In hunting I apply the improved clinch knot to the rope pulling up the bow or rifle to the tree stand.
 
The modern way of knowing knots

The improved clinch knot might have save a few fish over the decades, but it sure saved my compound bows and rifles, that I lifted by rope, up to the tree stand. If there is a better knot, I need no know it.

I have never really tied an "official" fish knot. Plenty of Boy Scout knots! Can't say I have had any slippers but after looking at these sites, I'll get some 20lb out and practice some. I especially liked the YouTube instructional video.
 
Iphone has a free app i use called KG Free, they also have a pay app for $1.99 that has many more knots but the free one has plenty for me.

If you want on the go knot instruction, Free app called "Fishing Knots"

It is pretty good with pics and instructions. With all other things, it takes practice to learn them.

I teach my son with the thin, piping shoe strings (you see on Nike's)

Once he gets the concept, he'll go to real line.
