The Leader knot makes a strong connection
between two lines. If joining a heavy leader to a lighter
main line make five or six turns with the lighter line instead
of the three turns shown in the diagram.
1) Lay the two lines to be
joined parallel to each other, facing in opposite directions.
Then lay the end of one line over the other line.
three wraps around both lines then pass the end back
through the loops that you have formed. Pull gently
to snug up the knot.
3) Now do the same with the other
line and again gently tighten the knot.
4) When both sides of the knot
are formed, lubricate them well with saliva and slowly
pull on both lines to bring the two knots together.
You may need to push the knots with your finger tips
to help them to slide easily.
5) Pull the finished knot
up tight and trim the tag ends close.
