From the Publisher:
A well-tied knot can mean the difference between success and failure for fishermen -- and nothing is more frustrating to an angler than losing the prize of a day or of a lifetime because of carelessness or an ill-chosen knot. "The Complete Book Of Fishing Knots" contains easy-to-follow expert instruction for all fishermen on how to tie eighty important knots. Clear color illustrations guide you step-by-step through the various stages of tying each knot correctly and provide the assurance that it will hold. All knots have specific uses for the fisherman -- to attach fly or lure to line, leader to leader, leader to line, line to backing, and scores of others. Thus the well-versed fisherman of any sort, fresh- or saltwater, will want to understand the best way to tie such knots as the Cinch, the Improved Cinch, the Blood Knot, the Albright Knot, the popular and reliable Surgeon's Knot, and such complex knots as the Bimini Twist, as well as many others. In addition to its state-of-the-art knot-tying techniques, the book contains a comprehensive glossary, of terms to guide all fishermen through the complexities of the different types of materials and how to join them.
