THE UNI-KNOT SYSTEM -- TYING LINE TO FISHING TACKLE
Illustration on how to tie your fishing line to terminal tackle.

The Uni-Knot System
One basic fishing knot which can be varied to meet virtually every knot tying need in either
freshwater or saltwater 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.   Run the line through the eye of hook, swivel or lure at least 6" and fold to make 2 parallel lines.

Bring the end of line back in a circle toward the hook or lure.

2.   Make 6 turns with tag end around the double line.

Pass tag end through the circle.

Hold the double line at a point where it passes through the eye and pull the tag end to snug up the turns.
