A novice fisherman will hit the water armed only with the knowledge of an overhand knot. A real angler wouldn’t dare venture out with such a limited arsenal. Along with the rod and reel, tying fishing knots is one of the most integral parts of the sport of fishing. Even with the best rod and bait, an angler will not be successful until he or she knows how to tie fishing knots. Different situations call for different knots. The knots needed for tying fishing line to a hook are different from the knots needed to join two sections of line together. 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.
