Knot Tying

Keep these things in mind when tying your knots:
  1. Wet your knot. Before you tighten a knot, lubricate it with saliva or by dipping it in the water. This will help the knot slide and sit properly.
  2. Pull knots tight. Tighten knots with a steady, continuous pull. Make sure the knot is tight and secure.
  3. Use nippers. You want to trim the excess material after your knot as close as possible without damaging the knot.
