The one I tie most often is the Improved Clinch Knot. Easy to tie, and if tied right, the more the fish pulls the tighter the knot gets. Some people prefer the Palomar knot. It is one of the best knots you can use for mono 100% knot strength. I have used this knot for years and never had it slip… or break at the knot......Highly recommended. The Palomar knot is a great knot for sure, but not for crankbaits. It can make the bait saw off to one side or the other. . ( Full Answer )

NEVER tie a tight knot when tying a horse. Horses get tangled in their lead ropes often when tied. Many, (if not most) horses will panic.. When horses panic, they quickly and easily do great harm to themselves.. If the rope is too long, horses will get it caught around their legs or fetlocks and …can very quickly get a horrible and painful rope burn that requires daily cleaning and medication and a lot of time to heal.. They can easily strangle or hang themselves and die. In fact, many have.. That's why you should always tie what is called a quick release knot . Some call it a safety knot, meaning you can very quickly untie the knot if the horse gets into trouble.. Trying to explain it here in words is almost impossible.

Horses are not typically tied to a post by their reins - It is not unusual to tie a horse to a hitching ring or rail with a half hitch. This has little resistance and an untrained horse can simply pull away from it.

The square knot is a wonderful knot for tying two pieces of string or rope together to form one. With one end of rope in each hand cross the right hand string over and under the left so that the left hand string is now in the right hand and vice-versa. Now, cross the left hand string over the rig…ht and under and tighten. So, i repeat, right over left and under, then, left over right and under.

This is an old camp fire riddle... to do it, fold your arms in front of your chest, hold one end of the rope in each hand, when you pull the rope will make an over hand knot. -------------- The fastest knot that can be tied without letting go is tied in the center of a rope, a Slip Knot. It i…s also one of very few knots that can be easily tied with one hand. Reach underneath the rope with right hand, raise hand and go to the right and over the now sagging part of the rope, reach back to the sagging part closest to you and grab it and pull it through the loop you created. This is a Slip Knot and can be made in less than a second with practice. ( Full Answer )
There are a lot of reasons for sailors to tie knots: So they don't lose their anchor, to stow their goods away, to haul sail, to tie the boat to the dock, to tie a smaller boat alongside, to make ladders with, to secure the ship's wheel during storms, and to give them something to hold onto when the…y ring the ship's bell. And to judge the speed of the water ( Full Answer )
I should start by saying that i do not tie this know at the neck rather down a bit at chest level where i can see it without a mirror, hence my preference for a very short thin-end starting point. I just found it easier when i began and now its a habit.. OK. Start with a small tail-end made of the …thin-end of your chosen tie and begin by wrapping the fat-end around it clockwise, but before you go all the way around bring it up and through the V formed at the neck.. Pull the fat-end all the way through and wrap it around the right-hand part of the V formed at the neck, again in a clockwise direction, but this time go all the way around to the 'front' i.e. the starting position.. Now, from the front, feed the fat end down through the V formed at the neck and wrap it around the left-hand part of the V formed at the neck and bring back to the front.. You should now have a short stubby tail of the thin end and each of the sides of the V formed at the neck should have had the fat end wrapped around it once. At this point take a look at the wrapping and eliminate any folds or kinks as these will impair the tightening of the knot later.. To finish the knot; bring the fat end around to the back of your concoction and feed up through the V formed at the neck with the intent to thread it through the loop now formed at the front. Here i tend to gently pull the whole way through and re-check for folds etc before taking the fat end down through the loop and preparing to tighten.. It has to be said that you have done 90% of the work for no result whatever so far and it can all go wrong now because tightening up the knot is tricky and getting a result that you are happy with will only come with practice. So .... tighten-up from above and below the knot a little bit at a time checking and re-checking the fit of the relevant parts of the knot; simply pulling on the fat end will not achieve any kind of result; keep going until such time as it is tight enough to form a distinct V shape and will sit correctly when tightened-up to the collar after pulling the thin end downward as normal.. Congratulations! you have just tied my version of 'The Windsor Knot' popularised by the then Prince of Wales who went on to be King Edward VIII of Great Britain albeit not for very long!.

Windsor Knot - hang tie over neck with the fat part on the right side, then right over left. then put right over left again, it should kind of like a cone.

Take a piece of string, double it, pass one end of the string through the hole made by doubling it, and repeat. * Added - The Monkey's Fist is very difficult to describe without a diagram - It consists of making 3 overlapping loops (look at the Ballantine beer symbol) - first make 1 circle clockwi…se, then double the circle laying the second line along the first; take the end, and now start an overlapping circle counterclockwise the same way above the first circle, over lapping about 1/3 of the circles; after the second strand is laid, go underneath the first circle and go to the left and alongside the first circle to make a 3rd circl, counterclockwise, with 1/3 overlapping both the 1st and 2nd circles; carefully pull the line tight and you have a Monkey Fist. This knot looks better and is more often done with 3 strands per circle. The Monkey Fist was first described and named by E. N. Little in 1888. There are a few variations on the knot that are nearly the same, and some include using 4 or more circles. ( Full Answer )

I've seen several knots that can be called a quick release. One is you tie a clove hitch but instead of passing the end of the rope under in the last step you double the rope and pass a loop through it. I have also seen people refer to the chain knot as a quick release. In that one you tie a s…lip known and then keep passing loops of rope through the slip loop. If you wan the knot to quick release you put a stick in the final loop then just pull the stick and go. I think the knot shown in the related link video is probably what you mean. ( Full Answer )

The sliding knot is made by placing your line around the line or other piece you wish it to slide on, and then making multiple Square Knots (not Granny Knots). Make at least 3, but you can extend this to more, for looks, just being sure to make each the same size as the before it. The last must be t…ied off tightly, and is the only difficult part of making this ropework. ( Full Answer )

There are a few knots that can be tied with one hand. One of the most useful knots for one hand is the slip knot. Lay the line down, reach under with your right hand, reach over the line to your right, reach underneath and grab the line close to you, grab and pull back forming a loop enclosed by the… hitch you formed from reaching. Place the loop over something - a slip knot. The Boy Scout's Lark's Head or cow hitch is easily made with one hand - With the line laying flat, reach underneath, grab both end with your hand and pull your hand back - the 2 half hitches formed should be slid over anything horizontal - this is a Lark's Head.

I suggest using cable ties (or sometimes a bit of elastic or string will work) to keep them in place when in use. If you're storing the cables …coil them up. ( Full Answer )
The very best of knots are the ones that are tied and UN-tied equally quickly. So the one word answer would be... quickly.
A Lark's Head knot is a term used by some, such as the Boy Scouts, to describe a hitch that goes around an object, and more often called a Cow Hitch, and also referred to as a Bale Sling. This is made my forming a single hitch, followed by a second single hitch in the opposite direction. This then p…resent the working end and the standing part together side-by-side. If the item to be secured has a free end, this hitch can be made very quickly by forming a small loop in the line, pull it ack toward the two ends (standing and working), and sliding the object between the 2 loops formed, and pulling tight.
