How to Tie a Uni-Knot

Producer: Tim Flagler

The Uni Knot may be the most versatile fishing knot there is. Let’s make believe the orange line is monofilament, fluorocarbon or braid and the carabiner is the eye of a hook. Insert the mono down through the hook eye and bring it underneath and parallel to the running line. Then, bring the tag end over top of the two lines, near the hook eye to form a loop that looks like this. Remembering this configuration is probably the most difficult part of learning to tie a Uni knot. But, with just a little bit of practice, it will become second nature.
