How to tie a Back-to-back Grinner Knot
Your step-by-step guide

This is similar to the Back-To-Back Blood Knot but uses a Grinner instead. This is another good knot for attaching leaders to your main line and is fairly easy to tie, along with been very reliable, so it will cope with long casts.

001 Firstly, take your two pieces of line and run them side-by-side to each other.

002 Create a loop using one piece of line running next to the other piece.

003 Go around the other line and through the loop five times, Grinner Knot style.

004 Moisten the knot and pull it down against the line, don’t do this too tightly.

005 Flip the knot around, as shown in the video, so you have the knot to your left.

006 Repeat the process again, but this time using the other line against the main line.

007 Moisten the knot down against the piece of line but don’t do this too tightly.

008 Now slide both of the knots towards each other until they meet in the middle.

009 Finally, trim off the tag ends so you are left with a lovely and neat knot.
