This is a Fishermans Knot, I decided to use these materials because you could see them easier than the fishing line.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Materials Needed
 -Fishing Line
-Hook, Lure, Swivel, etc.
-Oh, sorry! And Scissors or knife too!
<p>Thank you! I was trying to remember how to do this and couldn't get it, so I looked it up here. Your instructions were super easy to follow. :)</p>
interestingly enough, this is also the same knot used to tie off sutures. i also agree with everyone else....this is a well thought out ible. it's very well documented with perfectly clear instructions and understandable pictures to go with it.
Thank You All, this was my very first instructable!<br>Oh and I8nite, thank you for sharing that information!
...a very well done Instructable ! Thank you for teaching us how to make this very useful knot !!<br>
nicely done &quot;ible&quot;. I started fishing way back before monofilament was used by the average fisherperson and was taught this very same knot with 6-8 wraps. There is also one that is more like a hangmans noose for larger line. Over the intervening years I was told that the number of wraps you should use on mono depends on the line size, smaller test using less. It had something to do with friction affecting the line and that you should lubricate the line even if all you have is saliva before tightening the knot. How true either statement is, I don't know, but it's always worked for me. Thank you for sharing
Clear pictures and explanation. Very nice. :)
