Here's some links that might help. For the locked brummel around the knotbone check out Opie's pictoral here
. Just slide the knotbone on before starting to splice. On the opposite side of the CRL is a backsplice. Check out this
thread for a how to on that. I do it the opposite way SlowBro does his in the first post (I insert fid and use that to pull the tail through instead of the other way around) but each way works. Then for the prussics I would start here
for Opie's continuous loop pictoral. You won't need 12" loops as shown in the thread so I'd start out with about 18" of line and maybe 3-3.5" buries. Hope this helps and have fun!
