Jansik Knot - Muskie Fishing Knots and Rigs

This knot is well known in muskie fishing circles and is well regarded as one of the strongest fishing knots tested when tied correctly. Luckily it is fairly simple to tie and can be tied in the dark with some practice.

1.Put 15cm of line through the eye of the hook.

2. Bring it around in a circle and put the end through again.Making a second circle, pass then end through a third time.

3. Holding the three circles of line against each other, wrap the end three times around the circles.Either hold the hook steady with pliers, or make it fast to boat's rigging or safety lines.

4. Holding strain on the hook, pull on both ends of the line to tighten.
