Making Effective Knots Made Simple
Feel like you are all thumbs when it comes to doing knots? You are definitely not alone!
As outdoor enthusiasts, we all know that we need to do knots with our ropes for everything from camping to fishing and survival. It is obviously important when out in the wilderness to ‘know your knots’.
First of all we all wish we knew more about doing effective knots. Often knowing which knot to use for each situation can be a challenge. Which knot is best for which situation?
The other difficulty is knowing HOW to do these knots correctly. Even following someone else can sometimes be confusing as not everyone can explain things well.
So wouldn’t it be good to have something you could refer to and follow easily? Kinda ‘Know your Knots 101’.
Knots are something we come across in everyday life, from tying your laces to putting on a tie, but what are some of the simplest, easiest to learn knots that can help you out while out camping, hiking, fishing or even sailing! Here you can check out a very cool infographic on some of the top knots for each situation, how to tie them and what you’re likely to use them for!

To conclude, the key to know your knots is to practice the ones you think you will need most. The knots you choose will naturally depend on the type of outdoor activity you are doing. Therefore practice, practice, practice…
Most of all keep this knowledge with you when you are out in the great outdoors because you never know when you might need it the most!
