Fishing Knots

The Famous Centauri Knot from Australia

Dick Lewers is a famous fishing legend who found out about the idea the Centauri Knot. It is a knot which can be adjusted to size for the end of the terminal tackle. The knot has a minimum of friction that is great for fishing amongst all other complex knots. In addition, the Centauri Knot can also be used for the reel. Lots of fishermen prefer this style. 
 
Here are the instructions to making a Centauri Knot:
 
Step 1:
 
With the eye of the hook, thread the line and create a loop around the tag end. Using your thumb and forefinger, hold loop in place. 

Step 2:
Second, repeat this first step to form a second loop around the standing line. Also, hold loops in their places. 

Step 3:
Third, form the third loop and using your thumb and forefinger, hold the loops in their places. 

Step 4:
With that done, run the tag end through the three loops to create the knot to pull gently on the tag. 

Step 5:
As you tighten the knot, the standing line or lure hangs to form the loop. 

Step 6:
With the eye of the hook, slide the knot down and trim the remaining tag. 

Make sure that the Centauri Knot is secure because you could lose the end tag which is something we are trying to avoid at all costs. 
 

Our Take:

Overall, this method is for all fishermen that want to have a secure line for their bait and tackle when fishing. It is a good idea to have a partner whom will help you with this process. It is not always an easy process when creating this knot because the line can be a small thread which needs steady hands and also, a good eye. I assure you with practice, this certain knot can be achieved without a doubt. Fishing is a great hobby because fish can be eaten as well as a pride of having a good quiet hobby to be around nature and peace.
