    Your Essential Knots, go to and how to

    I am still waiting on my first hammock but I've wondered just what knots do you consider your go to knots for most occasions? Where did you learn them or can you explain how to tie them?

    Taught line hitch
    Marlin spike hitch
    Truckers hitch
    Clove hitch
    The tie your horse to the post bank robber knot (not sure of the name)
    Prussik and kliemheist

    These are the knots I use in various hanging situations.
    I learned most of them through google.
    Because you fall through the clouds if you try to lay on them, so the next best thing is a hammock.

    There are many posts here about different knots that are good for different situations. I use the search on google to better find information on the forum.

    Know those three.. you are good for any Hammock application...
    Learned them all in Boy Scouts.
    Throw in the Marlin spike and you have all you really need to know.
