The Figure Of Eight or Double Overhand Loop Knot is an extremely strong loop knot with many applications. Below is a step by step photographic sequence showing you how to tie it.
Choose your hooklink material and cut the desired length. I have chosen Sufix Camfusion 15lb for this demonstration.
Double the hooklink over and form loop to the approximate size that you require for your rig.
Form another loop in the doubled over hooklink material
Thread the end of the first loop through the second loop
Thread the end of the first loop through the second loop again
Gentley tease the knot down, this is the figure of eight
Moisten the knot with saliva and bed down then trim off the tag end. The finished Figure Of Eight Or Double Overhand Loop Knot.
Hope this is of use, any comments would be welcomed and appreciated.
