Paul Worsteling: Hi, I’m Paul Worsteling for Club Marine TV. Today I’m going to show you a knot called a locked blood. Now the locked bit’s really important, more about that later. This is the first fishing knot I ever learned to tie.
Fantastic for putting hooks on leader, fantastic for attaching a swivel or even two bits of mono back-to-back join em’ with two fully locked blood knots. Paul Worsteling: It’s this simple. Put the line through the eye of your hook.
Bring it back like that. Lave enough room for tag. Then all we literally do is twist our hook about six times. Three, four, five, six. Really pull with knots to always be in control, so pinch that there.
I get my tag and I put it back through this loop we’ve now created. Now if I was to pull all that tight, that will be called a blood knot. Don’t ever finish the knot here because it can slip. Paul Worsteling: What we do is take our tag, we put it back through that hole and that is what locks the knot off.
I think literally pull that up. Little bit of saliva and the key is to put this tag in my teeth and pull all three at once. I’ll show you how it works. Pull that up. Look at that. Then I cut my tag. Always leave a bit of room there with the tag ’cause you might get some slippage and that is a full locked blood knot.
If you tie it properly, it will never, ever come undone and that big fish is on, you know your knot’s gonna work. You don’t wanna be thinking, “Oh did I do it properly or didn’t I?” Remember the full locked blood knot will never let you down.
