step two in how to tie the uni knot. Pinch the backhand loop against the main line or leader, above the eyelet. Wrap the tag end of the line or leader around both main strands and through the loop (as shown below) four to eight times. Use less turns or wraps in heavy line and more in light line, and always make at least seven or eight turns if tying this knot in braided or fused gel-spun polyethylene (GSP or PE) line. ©
