We all use knots but you use them properly? There are many knots to choose from and this book will give you the choice you need to do a proper job. Please start with some of the more simple knots, before going on to the more complex knots. There is a great logic to most of the knots we use and careful attention to both the photographs, the arrows in the photographs and the text should give you the ability to tie all these knots. Do not expect to remember every knot from the first time you tie it, this pocketbook is here to remind you. The more you use a knot the easier it will become. The art of tying good and proper knots is well worth striving for.

Ref G108

Whether it is to insure granny's present arrives intact, or that you survive the fall from a rock face, everyone needs the correct knot at some time. Selecting and tying the appropriate knot is a valuable skill, requiring practice and dexterity.

'Knots' presents more than 50 of the most useful knots for camping, sailing, fishing and climbing. To help you find the best knot for the job, the book is divided into stopper and runner knots, hitches, loops, bends, shortenings and fishing knots. Each has easy-to-follow, colour-coded diagrams showing every individual loop and bend step by step. In addition, there is useful information on rope construction, breaking strains, and care and maintenance of ropes.

While most of us can get by learning to tie half-a-dozen or so, the full appreciation of the uses and limitations of a whole host of knots can be fascinating and rewarding.

SIMPLE KNOTS AND BASIC ROPEWORK SIMPLE KNOTS AND BASIC ROPEWORK

Knots have been around since our Neolithic ancestors first tied reef knots and clove hitches thousands of years ago. Today there are several thousand knots in existence and an infinite number of variations. 'Simple Knots & Basic Ropework' is a practical guide to tying 90 of these knots, from the simple over hand or thumb knot and the single hitch to the more challenging double constrictor knot and alternate ring hitching.

All the key knot types are covered, including bends, hitches, knots, bindings, loops, mats, plaits,rings and slings. Each knot is identified by category - general purpose, angling and fishing, boating and sailing, caving and climbing, and outdoor pursuits - with clearly written instructions and step-by-step photographs to take you through every stage of tying the knot.

Different cords and ropes are discussed, with a table charting the breaking strength of each and information on the broad range of natural and synthetic materials available and which are best suited for individual jobs. Helpful advice is also included on cutting and sealing ropes, the tools and materials required for each job, and care of rope, ensuring that you use the most suitable materials for each knot. Whether you are an eager beginner or lifelong devotee of the art of knot tying, 'Simple Knots & Basic Ropework' will prove an indispensable guide.
