Bristol Knot1. Tie a Bimini on the class line, making the loop fairly short. Insert the leader through the loop.
2. It helps to keep your index finger hooked around the leader to maintain a loop at the beginning of the knot. Wrap the tag end 5-7 times around the doubled line.
3. Bring the tag end back to start of the knot and pass through loop held by your index finger (under the first turn and over the doubled line loop).
4. Tighten the knot by moistening the lines with saliva and pulling on both the standing part of the leader and the double line. Trim the tag end, which should protrude at a 90-degree angle.
