The Spider hitch is an excellent knot
for quickly forming a double line when light tackle fishing,
although it's not as durable as either the Bimini
twist or the Australian
plait which we prefer for heavy tackle applications.
1) Double over the line and
form a reverse loop.
the reverse loop between thumb and forefinger.
3) Wrap the doubled line around
the thumb and the reversed loop five times (15 times if
using superbraid). Then pass the end of the double line
through the reverse loop. Slowly pull on the double line
allowing the loops to unwind off the thumb.
4) Moisten with saliva and pull
evenly on all four ends to tighten.
