A simple knot for attaching a fish hook to a line. The Canadian Figure-8 hitch is relatively secure and particularly good for thick artificial lines. As with any figure-8 knot, the Canadian Figure-8 hitch is easy to untie.
Pass the line through the ring from behind.
Turn the running end around the hook.
Pass the running end under itself to the left.
Thread the running end through the loop from above.
Tighten the knot.
The Canadian Figure-8 is complete.
