    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.

    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.

    Hi

    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)

    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.

    this is a great instructable good work
