How to tie the Running Bowline Knot. The Running Bowline produces a noose or sliding loop. This can be useful for retrieving objects by throwing the open loop around them and the loop will tighten down on the object, as the standing line is pulled tight. The knot does not bind against the standing line and can be easily undone.
