Title: Uni-knot  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia

Subject: Hangman's knot
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


The Uni Knot is a multi purpose fishing knot that can be used for attaching the fishing line to the arbor of a reel, for joining lines, and for attaching lures, snaps, and swivels.

The Uni Knot is widely used for attaching hooks, rings and swivels to the end of the line.[1]

The Uni Knot retains approximately 85-90 per cent of the monofilament's breaking strength. Knot strength varies between different fishing line brands but basically Uni-knot works well with all monofilament fishing lines.[2]

This knot is also called the Duncan Loop after its inventor, Norman Duncan.[3] The knot was popularized as the Uni-knot by an editor at the Miami Herald in the 1960s[4][5]
