FISHING KNOTS AND FLY FISHING KNOTS - TIE A NON SLIP MONO KNOT

 

Non-Slip Mono Knot

The Non-Slip Mono Knot is extremely strong and as the name says, does mot slip like some of the other loop knots. This knot has been tested to close to 100% of the line strength. It is very important that you follow the wrap counts for maximizing its strength. 8X to 6lb test: 7 wraps. 8 to 12lbs: 5 wraps. 15lb to 40lb test: 4 wraps. 50-60lb test: 3 wraps, and up to 120lb test: 2 wraps.

Step 1. Take your line and form an over-hand knot, leaving approximately 8 inches. Pass the tag end through the eye of the hook. Bring the line back through the overhand knot the same side it came out. Make your wraps based upon the numbers above.

Step 2.
After all the wraps are completed pass the line back through the over hand knot the same way it came out in the last step.

Step 3. Moisten the knot with your mouth, and while holding the hook in your right-hand pull slowly. As the knot tightens, take the standing line in your left hand and pull your hands apart finishing the knot. Finally, trim the ends.
