The Pocket Guide to Outdoor Knots
Maybe you weren’t a scout. Or maybe it was long enough ago that your bowline or sheet bend just isn’t up to snuff. Not to worry – this handy pocket guide will get you up to working knowledge in no time. With more than 300 full-color illustrations and photos, it uses easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to walk you through tying 80 useful knots. It isn’t a catalog of arcane or difficult-to-tie rope puzzles, but it does have the essentials you’ll need for fishing, boating, camping, climbing, and most anything fun you’d want to tackle out in the wild. There’s even a bit of “knot lore” for you die-hard outdoor enthusiasts. Grab a book and a rope and then bone up on your tying know-how. You’ll be thankful the next time you’re casting for a fat bass or roping off at the top of a ravine.
