I need to see what one I tied, the dumb thing came loose last weekend
Good thing I didn't shoot at anything that day, I'd of been looking at a $70+ replacement cost.

Default Knots

This site has excellent animated instructions for knots:

Go to the Boating Knots. The bowline will work. just check any knot to make sure it is secure before use.

Some knots work better than others on different types of line. If the line is stiff and slick like some polypropylenes or nylons, it can be difficult for any knot to hold. in that case you can use twine or good tape or even another knot to secure the end of the line to keep the knot from coming undone.

PS. The bowline can be tied wrong by making the loop turn outside the knot instead of inside (end of line ending up on the outside of the knot instead of ending up on the inside). If so, it will not hold as well.
