How To Tie A Knotless Knot
I use a knotless knot to create a hair rig for carp fishing, this creates a bit of separation between the bait and the hook, in conjunction with a lead creates a self hooking rig. Learn more in my step by step guide below:
Take a length of coated braid and strip back approximately three inches with a stripping tool.
Tie an overhand loop knot in the stripped back part of your braid.
Thread on your hook bait of choice and secure with a bait stop.
Take the other end of the braid and thread it through the eye of your hook towards the point.
Pull the hook down until it’s nearly touching the bait and set your hair length.
Wrap the braid around the shank of the hook approximately 10 times, moving gradually down the shank each time you wrap around.
Thread the end of the braid back through the eye of the hook towards the point, then pull down tight.
You now have a knotless knot, many carp fishing tactics use this knot so it would be a great one to learn!
