 Knot Tying and Uses bowline knot

Howdy folks.

I thought I'd pass this along to anyone who might be interested.

While riding my son's 4 wheeler around yesterday, I managed to get it stuck in the snow drift, up to the handlebars deep. I fell through the snow in a heavily drifted in area. His wheeler is equipped with tracks on all four corners.

The recovery operation was going to be a real chore, as there was no access to within less than 120 feet of the area.

A long cable was used, in combination with ropes and shackles. A bunch of snow was shoveled out ahead of the wheeler, then 2x6 boards were placed in the shoveled out area, to serve as ramps.

After pulling the buried wheeler out of the snow, we checked the rigging to see if anything was damaged. The knots used in the rope were easy to undo, and the strength of the knots was simply amazing.

A bowline knot was used at each end of the 1" nylon rope. A clevis was inserted through the loop, as well as through the tow ring on the wheeler.

For anyone who may want to know how to tie the bowline knot, this is the source for the information. It's a great site that teaches knot tying and usage designed for specific purposes.

I had a Boy Scout leader tell me how to remember to tie a bowline. After you make the loop you imagine the end of the rope being a rabbit, the rabbit comes up out of his hole, goes around the tree then back down his hole.
A bowline and a square knot are about the extent of my knot expertise.
A friend of mine holds a pilots license to operate big towboats like they use to push barges up and down the Mississippi. He has told me lots of things about knots and rope, most of which I have forgotten except that there is right and left handed rope. Ask your favorite hardware store if they stock any left handed rope. This is "not or knot", which ever you prefer a joke, OK.

Frank.

Frank,

It wasn't until I began logging for firewood, a few years back, that I began taking an interest in knot tying. I just knew there had to be "a better way".

The most common knots in my arsenal are the Bowline, Running Bowline, Half-Hitch, Prusik Hitch, and the Double Overhand Stopper knot.

My work in the trees is so much easier now, but it always surprises me to see how often I refer to these knots even when I'm working around the yard.

I've heard the same story about the rabbit coming out of the hole, around the tree, and back down the hole again. I'm not sure where that old teaching aid developed, but it's very useful when teaching someone how to tie the Bowline.

I think the most important time saver, for me, was learning how to make use of the middle of the rope, without having to look for a way to tie a knot in the end of the rope each time. The Prusik Hitch allows me to attach a load in the center of a long rope, in seconds. I've used it to haul out some very large logs, without once having to tie a knot, or try to find the end of the rope.

I use the hangmans knot often, use it on fish hooks also, do not know if that is the best knot for it but I never lost a hook using, though I have not caught many fish either lately So Sad

Dennis;

Yes, I forgot, my father in law taught me that knot for fish hooks a long time ago. I haven't been fishing since Moby Dick was a minnow. so I forgot about that one.
Another knot I forgot is one my Uncle taught me for connecting the end of one ball of twine to the beginning of the next ball of twine for the old time square balers. A regular square knot was too big to go through the knotters without catching somewhere. It was really simple and to look at it you swore it would never hold but it did. First you louped the two ends like you were going to tie a square knot leaving a couple inches of each twine past the first wrap. Next frizz the ends of the twine an inch or so back from the ends then push the frizzed ends together rolling them with your thumbs. When you get it rolled down to a size not much larger than the twine spit on it and roll it some more. Now pull it tight with the spit on parts going into the initial half of a square knot you started with. The first few I did failed, but I finally got on to it and never had a knot catch again.

Frank.

Dennis,

I admit that my fishing knot skills are very outdated. I grew up fishing with fishing line that doesn't even exist today. These new-fangled fishing lines require new knot-tying skills, which I haven't yet bothered studying.

My neighbor showed me some Spider Wire fishing line. It's really good stuff, but the old, tried and true "improved clinch knot" isn't the best knot to use with it.

He showed me how to tie the Palomar Knot (spelling?) for use with braided fishing line. I'm using it now, as it's the only one I know of that works well with teflon coated braided line, but that's the only new fishing knot I've learned over the past 30 years.

Joel
