Knotless Knot

A quick strong knot that avoids the tying of a separate hair when attaching lengths of braid to a specimen hook. Ideal for Barbel and Carp rigs.

Begin by tying a small ¼ over hand loop at the end of about 18 inches of braid. Make sure that to trim the end tight to the knot, then thread the braid through the eye of the hook.

Hold the loop at the required distance from the bend of the hook.  Remember the size of the bait you are using. Whip the hair to the back of the hook.

Whip the line around the hook at least seven times and then feed the loose end through the eye of the hook.

 

Pull the rig tight and add a drop of super glue to the whipping for extra strength.
