At Petersburg Sport Fishing we typically will always be there to tie, help, or instruct on the different knots that you will need to use while you are here with us, but for those who would like to get a jump start on their knowledge or would like a refresher course check out this amazing website.

All fishermen must start with this knot. Do you want to catch a 300 lbs Halibut? Then you better tie an improved clinch on your spreader bar. (even then it still might break the line and get away, but at least you can say you hooked into a barn door and you won't be able to blame your knot for the departure of the biggest fish of your life)
Here is a list of other knots that you will probably want to know sooner or later:
The Surgeon's Knot
The Nail Knot
and for Boating I love the following:
The Mooring Hitch(click here for a site that has this knot. This website isn't as cool but its functionable. Did I just make that word up or did I spell it wrong?)
Now don't get me wrong there are a ton of other knots out there and I have used quite a few of them but these are the ones I use on a daily basis.
Oh and by the way www.animatedknots.com has an App for this too!
