The Bowline

Not a fishing knot, but certainly one every boating fisherman should know, this rope knot is used to make a fixed-size loop in a line. The bowline is used to temporarily tie a rode to an anchor, or, using one knot on each line, tie together 2 lines of different diameters. The advantage of the bowline are that its loop will not slip, and its ability to be untied after being exposed to a strain.
 
  1. Make an overhand loop (eye). Pass the free end through the eye, to form a larger eye.
  1. Pass the free end beneath the standing part, making an underhand loop.
  1. Bring the free end through the first eye again.
  1. Pull the free end tight.
