Product Description

Review

"Everything you need to know about fishing knots. The only thing this book will not do is practice tying knots for you."--Sports Afield


"the definitive book on fishing knots." --The St. Paul Pioneer Press

From the Back Cover

Field & Stream Magazine called the first edition of this essential book: 'The longtime bible of knots and knot tying.' That edition sold more than 125,000 copies in the twenty years it remained in print. New lines and leaders, new knots, and new nomenclature have finally required a completely new book - and this is the fully re-written and freshly illustrated successor, a book that all owners of the original Practical Fishing Knots will surely want. Graced with the exceptionally clear line illustrations by Rod Walinchus, made especially for this new edition, this book is a must for all fishermen - fresh and saltwater, fly, bait, and spinning - who want the clearest possible instructions on how to tie all the essential knots that hold. (6 X 9, 144 pages, illustrations)

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best book on fishing knots Oct. 31 2002
Format:Paperback
I've looked through all the other books on knots (and/or fishing knots), and even own some of them. This book is the hands-down winner. First, it has ALL the knots. Second, it's very specific about how to tie them, including how many wraps for different situations, and which side the tag end should come through, etc. The only problem with the book is that it can be a little hard for a beginner to figure out what basic set of knots s/he needs for a particular type of fishing (e.g., fly fishing). Although the book makes an effort at this, their suggestions don't jibe with what I've learned in the field and are a bit too complicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must-have reference for the fisherman. March 15 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is one of the best sources for fishing knots, and knot tying, that you can find. The organization is such that you can find quickly several knot options for the task in mind, clear text that explains strengths and weaknesses of each knot and its use, and excellent diagrams that, with a little practice, make the knot yours. I give this book a 9 only because there are a few knots, and short-cut methods of tying them, such as the Turrel (sometimes called Turtle) knot, which are not included. If they were, then this near-ten would be an eleven. This book not only belongs on your book shelf, it needs to be in your tackle box.

5.0 out of 5 stars practical fishing knots June 25 2010
By Joan Scott Bowers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Practical Fishing Knots is exactly what the title promises. It is easy to read and has lots of knots pictured. They are detailed and simple enough for the reader to comprehend. My husband has enjoyed this book often, which surprised me as he's not a big reader and he already is pretty knot savvy. A+

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very good book that is well illustrated and gives real knowledge you can use. It gives knots for every kind of line and fishing. I only used a few knots so far but they all worked much better than what I had been doing. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn how to use the right knot for the situation you find yourself in.

Great book, great instructions, but a spiral bound version would be so much easier to use.
This book has a very stiff spine and is small. Very hard to hold open without blocking half the steps.
