Spider Hitch Knot Tying Instructions
- Double over a length of line and form a loop as illustrated.
- Hold the loop between thumb and forefinger.
- Wrap the doubled line around the thumb and the loop five times (15 times if using braided line). Then pass the end of the double line through the loop. Slowly pull on the double line being careful to allow the loops to neatly unwind off the thumb.
- Moisten the knot with saliva and pull evenly on all four ends to tighten.
