Fishermen-beginners often face a problem,When the line suddenly bursts under the weight of the caught fish. Therefore, the question of how to link the two lines together, they are quite relevant. Note that there are several ways of binding, but all nodes must meet two requirements:
- Compact size.
- The knot should not get stuck when passing the line through the rings of the fishing rod.
Knot "Blood Ties"
Consider this option, which is considered very reliable and the easiest. Experts claim that its strength is 90% of the whole product.
Attention! With this knot you can connect lines of the same diameter or two lines of different diameters, but that one is greater than the other by a maximum of 30%.
- The ends of the two lines meet each other in such a way that their overlap is 20 cm.
- One line is wrapped around a nearby fishing line. The winding should be started from the overflow, leaving a free end. The number of turns is 5-8.
- The remaining free end after winding is rotated in the opposite direction.
- Now all the same operations are done with the other fishing line.
- The remaining ends must be pulled off. In doing so, do not forget to correct the knot itself. Experienced fishermen recommend fishing lines with water during the tightening process.
- The excess is cut off, leaving only small ends 2 mm long.
There are several more kinds of nodes, but they areits design is more complicated. Therefore, advice for beginners - study first this option, after which you can move on to others. For example, "Albright", "Shok leader knot", "Grinder". Anyone who wants to read them can find information on the Internet. It is only necessary to add that all these nodes can connect not only the lines with each other, but also the line with the braid.
