Pocket Guide to Knots
by Lindsey Philpott

Knots have endless uses, and knowing which one to tie, how to tie it correctly and when to use it is an invaluable skill, especially for anyone involved in outdoor activities. Pocket Guide to Knots provides comprehensive instructions for tying more than 100 popular knots commonly used in climbing, tramping, boating, camping and fishing. An introductory section outlines the basics of rope construction, the many different types of ropes and cordage, as well as their maintenance and care, and also delves into the interesting history of knots. The chapters are arranged by ‘family’ for easy identification, each knot featuring detailed tying instructions and step-by-step photography in full colour, as well as tips and lore, important advice on strength and security, and a quick-reference system that indicates suitable applications.
