Classic I found this book to be a great guide to knots - alll kinds of knots for different occasions within the categories of: - Angler's and Still Fisherman's Knots - Commercial Fisherman's Knots - Knots of for Fishing Traps and Seines - Knots for Netmaking and Repairing Since this information can be hard to pass-on through books, its important to know that the quality of the photographs and drawings are excellent and the descriptions are clearly written. It is concerning that the quality of the book is guaranteed... I have since purchased a book exclusively on net making that I would highly recommend. It shows you the basic net knot and describes projects that use it, from shopping bags to hammocks. Check out Net Making by Charles Holdgate if you're interested - Allegro Editions prints it new.
