The Little Book of Incredibly Useful Knots: 200 Practical Knots for Sailors, Climbers, Campers & Other Adventurers by Geoffrey Budworth & Jason Dalton

Learn to apply the right knot for any situation—a guide for the home, backpack, or boat.

The fundamental skill of tying knots is useful in countless situations, both indoors and out. The Little Book of Incredibly Useful Knots teaches you which knot to choose and exactly how to tie it, whether you??re constructing a trout fly, repairing a hammock, mooring a boat, securing a load to a car roof rack, or engaging in a rescue or survival situation.

Compiled and written by two experts on the subject, this is an invaluable manual that explains through clear line diagrams and step-by-step descriptions how to tie more than two hundred practical knots, grouped by construction and tying method. Every entry contains a brief introduction to the history and development of the knot, its alternative names, and information on its uses and special features. Types of knots detailed include:

Wagoner??s hitch
Englishman??s loop
Scaffold knot
Cordelette anchor
Trident loop
Lobster buoy hitch

The book also contains a comprehensive glossary of terms to guide you through the complexities of different rope types. It helps you choose the right rope for every task.
