Visit www.netknots.com for all your “Knot Needs”

I found this site recently and discovered it to be the most comprehensive collection of knots I’ve seen, fishing or otherwise.  Each knot has a brief history/background, step-by-step drawings, and an animation to show you how it’s done.  This site is a “must have” bookmark in your browser.  Go to www.netknots.com to see this fine collection of knots.
