The Jansik Special

Another beautifully simple knot that can be tied in the dark, The Jansik Special is a high strength knot.

1. Put 6 inches of line through the eye of the hook.

2. Bring it around in a circle and put the end through again. 

3. Making a second circle, pass then end through a third time.

4. Holding the three circles of line against each other, wrap the end three times around the circles.
5. Either hold the hook steady with pliers, or make it fast to boat's rigging or safety lines.
6. Holding strain on the hook, pull on both ends of the line to tighten.
