A good fishing implies the presence of a good and reliable snap. Because at the time of fishing often occurs off the hook, so the ability for a small period of time to resume the capacity of the equipment is necessary for the fisherman. And the skill of knitting of the main types of fishing knots is a basic skill that should be taught in the first place.
There are many ways of binding fishing line with a hook, each of which has its own characteristics and scope. We are simple and reliable nodes called eight.
Features host eight
Used in our time, the nodes, most of them were invented centuries ago and was used primarily by sailors. Now this knowledge willingly adopted the climbers and fishermen.
There are many types of eight, and each of them has its own purpose.
Most commonly used for fishing:
- knot double figure of eight;
- fishing and eight.
Loop associated with eight, feels like the network or on any types of fishing line. This is due to the fact that braided line or fishing line associated with this method has fewer curves than the use of other weaves. Another positive quality host eight – it does not damage the fishing line or braided line, despite the rather heavy load.
To achieve higher strength and security nodes, apply additional control nodes. But supplements can neutralize such important advantages of this type of nodes as the simplicity and ease.
In some cases you need to apply eight?
Since there are several varieties, the scope of this node is very large.
- For the formation of the fixed and movable hinges.
- For tying to the end of the main fishing line hooks, weights, feeders, bait and other items a snap.
- To connect the main line with a leash on float tackle.
- For connection of the ends of the fishing line or braided line
- To increase the overall length of the line.
For all these purposes, we use eight node or one of its varieties.
How to knit eight
Although its principle knots is similar, but the pattern of each person.
This loop is a fundamental. It is intended for tying hooks, weights or lures that have the eye. Fishing eight is considered to be one of the most durable compounds. This method is good because, if its application is not scaring away the fish formed a big wad of fishing line. And thanks to the small deformation of the synthetic line does not lose its properties.
Before the invention of synthetic fishing line anglers used this loop for natural materials such as hair, linen, gut, etc.
However, fishing eight, can serve as a component part of other, more complicated knots.
How to make the top eight:
- Double fishing line make a loop. Pre-fishing line can be pulled through the swivel or ring of the hook, if necessary.
