Synopsis

The fundamental skill of tying knots is useful in countless situations, both indoors and out. The Book of Knots teaches you which knot to choose and exactly how to tie it, whether you're constructing a trout fly, repairing a hammock, mooring a boat, securing a load to a car roof rack, or engaging in a rescue or survival situation.



Compiled and written by two experts on the subject, this is an invaluable manual that explains through clear line diagrams and step-by-step descriptions how to tie more than 125 practical knots, grouped by construction and tying method. Every entry contains a brief introduction to the history and development of the knot, its alternative names, and information on its uses and special features.
