With a long tag end, form a loop and twist it at least 20 complete turns. With finger and thumb (brown sticks here) compress the twists to make the tag end wind tightly around the twists. Hold the knot and secure it with a half hitch and multi-loop hitch (tuck tag end between the lines). Tighten and trim.
The Bimini Twist is used to create a strong loop for use as a double-line leader on the end of a fishing line which can then be used for a loop-to-loop connection.Categories: Featured Articles
