    Somebody suggested making this article a favorite. I'd like to do that, but I haven't figured out how. I searched the faqs, but if that info is there I can't find it. Can I get a little help?

    One of the best posts I've ever seen on any board of any type. Knots have always been a weakness of mine. I've always managed to get by though. I never knew their names, I just tied them. I plan on working on these. Thanks Rat!!!

    I love that slipped buntline knot. Any other uses you could think of for it?

    I posted a video on YouTube with a knot that I absolutely love using. It's fast and easy, both to tie and untie. Enjoy!

    Great post, thanks.
    A knot many use is the prusik. But it slips and jams on amsteel. if you use it with an overhand knot, or a double overhand, it is locked under load, and can be slid when load and overhand loosened.
