How to tie a Back-to-back Blood Knot
Your step-by-step guide in association with Berkley Fishing

The Back-To-Back Blood Knot gives you a secure and neat leader knot. These are perfect for attaching two pieces of monofilament together or for attaching a fluorocarbon leader to your main line.

001 Firstly, take your two lines and have them running side-by-side to each other, with plenty of excess.

002 Take your main line and wrap it five times around your leader and pass it back before the first wrap.

003 Now do the same with the leader and pass it back through the same way as the other tag end.

004 Moisten the knot and gently pull the main line, leader and the tag ends to bed the knot down.

005 Slide both of the knots down so they butt-up against each other neatly and trim off the tag ends.

006 Here is your finished knot. It will never let you down when it comes to a leader knot.

CARPology's 'how to tie knots' series is brought to you in association with Berkley. Berkley rewrote the ‘what-you-can-make-a-fishing-line-from’ rulebook by producing the world’s first hyper line, Nanofil, and now comes a range of four brand-new lines. Read our full review here
