THE UNI-KNOT  SYSTEM  --  JOINING 2 FISHING LINES (of similar diameter)
Illustration on how to tie two fishing lines of similar diameter to each other.

One basic fishing line knot which can be varied to meet virtually every knot tying need in either
fresh or salt water fishing.  That was the objective of Vic Dunaway, author of numerous books
on fishing and editor of "Florida Sportsman" magazine. 
The Uni-Knot system resulted.  Knot illustrations and directions thanks to Ande Monofilament.


Uni-knot fishing knot, joining 2 lines, step 1

1.   Overlap ends of two lines of about the same diameter for about 6".  

Take one end, and form the Uni-Knot circle, crossing the two lines about midway of the overlapped distance.
