How to tie the Seaguar Knot. Introduced to America by the factory reps from fluorocarbon line maker Seaguar, this easy to tie and reliable knot joins fluorocarbon leaders to monofilament line. If you look closely you will notice that the Seaguar Knot is actually tied in the same manner as the King Sling knot. The difference being in that the King Sling Loop Knot is tied at the end of a line with doubled line and the Seaguar is tied with two lines, but the methodology is the same. The Seaguar Knot is one of 12 great fishing knots included on the Pro-Knot Saltwater Fishing Knot Cards (click to see).
