How to tie a half blood-knot

Here we show you how to tie a half blood knot (also known as a cinch knot) which is perfect for fishing as it easily attaches a fishing line strongly to a hook.

  1. Pass the end of the line through the eye of the hook or swivel
  2. Twist the end round the standing part five times
  3. Pass the free end through the loop the eye (if you tighten it now, this is the normal half bloodknot, but we will make it stronger!)
  4. Pass the free end through the larger loop now formed to produce the officially named tucked half bloodknot
  5. Pull tight and moisten as you do to help the knot close up properly.
