Introduction: How to Tie a Uni Knot
So what is an uni-Knot. An uni-knot is a knot used in fishing for many different things, so there are two different kinds of uni knots. One type is to tie a hook to fishing line and the other is called a double uni-knot. The double uni-knot is used to attach two different kinds of line, such as fly line and mono, together.
Step 1: How to Tie the Uni-Knot
The first knot we will go over is the uni-knot. all you need to do this is a hook and line for this.
Feed line through the eye and make a loop with the tag end (making sure there is plenty of tag)
wrap the tag end around 5-7 times around both lines but make sure to leave the loop
Know take the tag end and the hook and pull tight but make sure to wet the knot before this.
This is the completed uni knot and next I will show how to do the double Uni-Knot.
Step 2: How to Tie the Double
This knot ties a lot like the single but should be used for tying rope together. you can tie a single for tying rope if one (such as mono line) can bite into the other (such as fly line). Okay know to tie the knot.
lay both lines next to each other and make a loop in one(with plenty of tag on it as before) and also leave lots of spare line on the other line
Wrap the tag end around both lines (but not the loop)
Pull this knot tight but not tight enough you cant move it later
repeat these steps again but with the other line
move both knots two were they are touching
tighten each knot and cut the tags off
And there you have it you have tied the double uni- knot. If you enjoyed this tutorial please follow me here for more and also subscribe to my YouTube channel, Axe Outdoors, for outdoors videos by clicking here.
