Clicky...

Now the problems: the first knot you call a fishermans above is listed as a water knot in the video. They are two different knots. And fwiw, I've never seen anyone join two ends of webbing with a fishermans knot.

The second knot you call a triple fishermans above is listed as a double fishermans in the video. Once again, two different knots.

And finally the knot you listed above as a bowline is a bowline with a Yosemite finish? (can't really tell because I'm watching this on my stupid phone) and then a 1/2 fishermans to secure the tail.

Also your white balance was off, you used rope/webbing of the same color and were too far away, all of which make it difficult to see the knots.

Here it's done properly: http://www.animatedknots.com/...fishermans/index.php

Actually, a double fisherman's is an INCREDIBLE webbing knot. Only 2 problems: it uses a lot of webbing to tie; and you WILL NOT be able to untie it after significantly weighting it. It's not one of those "maybe, if you try hard enough" kind of things. It just won't come undone without cutting it. Probably something to do with the amount of friction on the surface area of the webbing.

Except they didn't tie a double fishermans knot in the webbing, they tied a single fishermans. Besides, the point wasn't that it wouldn't hold (it may very well), just that I had never seen it and that it was labeled wrong in the video.

Understood. Didn't actually watch the videos haha. I was just trying to add a fun fact to the thread.

Good feedback. Are the heavier titles obscuring the bad old titles new since your feedback? Really, the link you provided was sufficient. Unless you're going to improve upon what's out there, why bother?

Just clicked on the links I quoted and the old, incorrect titles are still there covered by new larger font titles. Though for some reason, they don't show up on my phone but they do on my lap top (if that makes any sense?).

Anyway, you're right, given the other link I posted I'm not sure what the point was.

xthree, you are confused. Not a single one of those is correct and as advertised.
