The Spider Hitch

This is a faster, easier knot to create that is equally strong but does not have the resilience of the Bimini Twist under sharp impact.
 
  1. Form a loop of the leader length desired. Near the point where it meets the standing line, twist a section into a small reverse loop.
  1. Hold small loop between thumb and fore-finger with thumb extended well above finger and loop standing out beyond end of thumb.
  1. Wind double line around both thumb and loop, taking five turns. Pass remainder of large loop through the smaller one and pull to make five turns unwind off the thumb.
  1. Pull turns around the base of the loop up tight and snip off tag end.
