Today knots are still needed in everyday life, from tying up parcels to hitching a horse. If you're a camper, climber, fisher, or sailor this book is for you. Featuring step-by-step guides to over 100 knots, each illustrated with specially commissioned illustrations, it teaches the novice the basics and the more experienced some knots they might be unfamiliar with. Covered are stopper knots, binding knots, bends, hitches, loops, plaits and splices. Following a short historical introduction, a section looks at specialist equipment that might be needed and gives a glossary of terms. Basic techniques are then discussed before the main body of the book. Here, after a section that looks at general knots that can be used for a wide variety of purposes, the remainder of the book is broken down by activity - fishing, sailing, climbing, and camping and shows with color illustrations, with pointers and caption text how best to tie each one.
