High tensile wire can be a real pain in the neck to handle. The first time I had to do some fencing with it I made an absolute mess of the job, and lost a bit of skin along the way. I guess I was lucky not to lose an eye.
When at last someone showed me this technique I was amazed and incredibly grateful.
Here's a quick video to show how to tie high tensile wire the easy way.
I hope this will be helpful to someone. If you have any questions or comments please post them.
