The Arbor Knot is used to attach the fishing line to the “Arbor” or “Spool Center”.The Arbor Knot is really based on a noose knot and, therefore, pulling it tightens it. The Arbor Knot is simple, easily learned and effective.
To Tie an arbor Knot:
|Thread the line around reel arbor and tie an overhand knot around the line itself.|
|Tie a second overhand knot in the tag end. This second knot keeps line from slipping through the first.|
|Grab on either side of the knots and pull tight. Cut off the excess. Then slide the first overhand knot down the line to snug it around the reel arbor.|
