<p>WOW! It worked!</p>
Thank you for the comments...rhino I'm going to use that &quot;spit of a virgin&quot; with my son when he's big enough haha
<p>That looks like a legit knot. im gonna try that next time I tie something. My knot skills are way low because i can use the fingers in my hand but this looks doable. Thanks.</p>
<p>Excellent explanation of the greatest fishing knot known to men or Gods. When I was taught this knot many decades ago it was explained to me that you had to use the spit of a virgin. Later on I learned that was not exactly so. I guess the old man was trying to use my love of fishing to keep me on the straight and narrow. Voted.</p>
<p>Hi</p><p>In the uk this is called a half blood tuck (the tuck being the last tuck through the loop) as opposed to the half blood (without the last tuck)</p><p>it is a great knot and will often outlast the strength of the fishing line, the saliva is key to this as it is a friction knot and will stress the fishing line when pulled tight without the saliva. this is the main knot i sue whenever i go fishing, it is also the simplest knot to teach kids when the go fishing.</p><p>this is a great instructable good work</p>
