Another common knot for attaching a hook to a line. Very secure on thick and rough lines, but can release, if the line is thin. As any figure-8 knot, Fisherman’s Figure-8 Hitch is easy to untie. ABoK #294, #1415

Step 1: Pass the line through the ring from behind.

Step 2: Thread the tail through the ring from behind again.

Step 3: Continue around the standing part and through the 1st loop from above.

Step 4: Tighten the knot.

Step 5: The fisherman’s Figure-8 is complete.
