This small book is jam-packed with information on every kind of practical and decorative loop, coil, wrap, noose, and tie you can make--along with facts on ropes and cordage and groups of color photographs that show in easy-to-follow detail how to do each type. You probably already know some of the basic ones, but not their names or what they're used for: the overhand or thumb knot, which works as a simple stopper; double, triple, or multiple overhands for extra strength; a half hitch, which forms the starting point of more complex knots; and others. Need something more specialized? Try knots for camping (like the perfection loop for securing tents), climbing (the alpine butterfly and tarbuck), angling (a four-stage blood bight or palomar), sailing (a heaving-line bend and bowline, to name two), and household use. Craft knots, primarily for beauty rather than strength, include the very attractive Turk's head--which even fascinated Leonardo da Vinci. Best of all, this little volume can go with you anywhere, tucked into a pocket.so you'll always have the information you need, whether you're roughing it in the woods for a weekend, heading out for a cruise, or seeing if the fish are jumping!

Learn how to tie every possible knot you could ever need--each one serves a different purpose and situation. Is strength a priority? How about the speed and ease of tying? Perhaps it's the size of the knot or its reliability? Pole-lashing will secure objects like curtain poles and broom handles together, for example, while Blood Bight is used to make loops in fly-fishing leaders. Or try Three-Part Crown to safely hang camping gear off the ground. Whether you're making a crafts project or boating, there's a knot suited to any task you want to do.
