1. Run the line through the eye of hook, swivel or lure at least 6" and
fold to make 2 parallel lines.
Bring the end of line back in a circle toward the hook or lure.
2. Make 6 turns with
tag end around the double line.
Pass tag end through the circle.
Hold the double line at a point where it passes through the eye and pull the tag end to
snug up the turns.
3. Now pull the
standing line to slide the knot up against the eye.
4. Continue pulling
until the knot is tight. Trim tag end flush with closest coil of knot.
The uni-knot will not slip.
