CATS PAW KNOT
How to Tie the Cats Paw Knot
The Cats Paw Knot is one of the preferred methods for joining lines where maximum knot strength is required, such as top-shotting game reels. It provides a reliable, smooth running connection in both monofilament and gelspun lines. Another area where the Cats Paw Knot really shines is when used in conjunction with twisted casting leaders. It is very similar to the cow hitch except there is an additional twist on each side of the bight, making it less prone to slipping.
