I just wanted to display some excellent work done by Steven Le Say‎ on FaceBook.

“After yesterday’s massive fishing hook I thought I would make one that I could definitely use. I’m going to make a few different styles of hooks and toggles then go and try them all out.
Penny for size reference”

I personally love this as it is really going back to basics. Hopefully I will shortly be able to give you an update on how well they worked – Is Steven a bitter fatter or starving hungry?

Clove Hitch Knot How to Tie

A very quick short video on how to tie the clove hitch knot. A fast and easy way to secure a line to a stanchion or pole. This knot is often used to temporarily secure a fender over the side of a boat. Unfortunately this knot is not totally secure and the knot can come undone if the loaded end is in motion. A more reliable knot in this case would be a round turn and two half hitches. However, for short term use the Clove Hitch is adequate.

Figure of Eight Knot How to Tie

How to tie the figure of eight knot. From the Knot Book, written by Geoffrey Budworth and Nic Compton……”The essential knot to prevent a sheet of halyard running through a block, the figure-of-eight also forms the basis of many other fancier knots. It differs from an overhand knot in that the ends emerge from the knot parallel to each other, rather that at angles. It is so much less likely to seize up when tightened.
