Fishing Basics – Knot tying – How to tie a knotless knot.
This post is designed to try and demonstrate how to tie a very sturdy and reliable knot which can be used when targeting bigger fish using techniques such as the method feeder or hair rigged baits. I have tried and tested this particular knot and can guarantee, if tied correctly will hold a lump of a fish.

2. Then holding the loop end against the shank (bend) of the hook begin to wrap the loose end of the hook link around the tag end and shank of the hook forming a spring or coil around them both.
3. Wrap the line around the looped end and the shank at least 8 times (There are some old fishing superstitions that say 13 is the lucky number, but that’s up to you)
4. Once you have formed enough coils around the shank of the hook, holding the line tightly against, take the free loose end and pass it back through the eye of the hook and pull tight.
5. There you have it. You should have something that looks like this. A hair rigged knotless knot hook set up.
