We continually update the site with new additions and more knot tying tutorials so bookmark us and check back often! The Fishing Knots section contains the most fishing knots on the internet and they are clearly displayed in sections by type for Loops or Line to Line knots and Terminal Tackle, and also as selections for beginners, fly fishing, salt water, even Tenkara!

The Rope Knots section includes handy selections of camping knots and knots for boating, climbing, arborist, search and rescue, survival and other outdoor pursuits.
All of our knots are clearly illustrated with step by step instructions and animated for you to sit back and watch. You can pause and rewind the animation while you practice tying for yourself. It makes learning easy and fun! New additions to the site include a Fashion Section for Neckties, Scarfs and even Pocket Square folds.

And if you are a fly fisherman or woman, don't miss our new Fly Tying section! We have fly tying instruction videos by some of the biggest names in fly tying such as the late, great Shane Stalcup and some super fish-catching patterns.

As the famed knot tying expert Clifford Ashley noted in his 620 page knot tying trove "The Ashley Book of Knots", “A knot is never ‘nearly right,’ it is either exactly right, or hopelessly wrong.”  A common phrase in knot tying communities such as the International Guild of Knot Tyers is that it is better to know a knot and not need it than to need a knot and not know it! So while using this resource remember that it is more important to learn a few knots well
than to half-learn all of the knots. Thanks for making us the go-to tying resource of the internet for over twenty five years - Enjoy!
