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.
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
2. Tie the Uni-Knot, making six
turns around the two lines (leaving the loop free).
3. Pull the tag end to form a snug
knot tight around the line.
4. Use the loose end of the
overlapped line to tie another Unit-Knot as shown above and pull snug.
5. Pull the two standing lines in
opposite directions to slide the knots together. Pull as tightly as possible and
snip ends close to nearest coil.
