- The Fisherman's knot is used to tie two ropes of equal thickness together. It is used by fishermen to join fishing line, and is very effective with small diameter strings and twines.
- Tie a Thumb knot, in the running end of the
first rope around the second rope. Then tie a thumb knot in the second
rope, around the first rope. Note the Thumb knots are tied such they
lie snugly against each other when the standing ends are pulled.
