We all use knots when we fish. No matter if your drift boat fishing, plunking, surf fishing, dragging iron or Ocean boat fishing. We all use knots. Do you use the right knot for what you are doing, the right knot for the type of line your using?

There is a huge debate about which is, or is not, the right way to join two lines together. Attach swivels, put on a lure, or just get a hook on the end of your line. I'm not going in to that discussion here, what I am going to do is put in some links below for you to see how to tie different types of knots to hopefully keep you attached to the next big fish you catch.

Tight Lines....

Here is the first link. It contains many different types of knots. Click on the 'Fishing Knot' link, or browse the many & varied different types of knots there are. Boaters may like the 'Boating' link & for those long wet, dreary Oregon winter day's & nights, why not try some decorative knot tying!
