BOWLINE SHEET BEND DRAW (small, in or out)
– Materials: 6-foot rope or braided nylon cord for each Scout
– Method: Each patrol forms two lines facing each other. Each Scout holds his rope in his right hand raised above his head. At the word “Go,” each races to tie a Bowline around his waist, then join the ropes together with a Sheet Bend. Scouts lean backward with their full weight to test the knots.
– Scoring: The first patrol to have all knots tied correctly and all Scouts leaning backwards, with their Sheet Bends next to each other in a straight line, wins.

I tied 30-pound Berkley FireLine Braid to 10-pound Big Game mono, two lines of similar diameters. The winner here is happily also the easiest to tie: a Palomar knot on either side of a small intermediate barrel swivel. In casting and reeling, the swivel must remain outside the tip-top guide. This limits leader length to 2 or 3 feet, which is usually adequate. If you require a knot that will travel through the rod guides, use a J knot, which tested at nearly 100% for this combination—but is much harder to tie than a Palomar.

There is no doubt that this knot is one of a kind. As opposed to the vast majority of tie knots, this one is produced by using the small end as the active end, creating a tapered fishtail braid-like effect. It's a very fancy knot that will leave a great impression on your boss.This is made up of the Four-in-Hand Knot with an additional knot tied using the small end right beneath the main knot, creating the hourglass look. It’s impossible to adjust after being tied, so you need to get it right the first time. You'll achieve a great effect using striped ties.The small knot, or oriental knot or Kent knot, is the simplest method of tying a man's necktie, though some claim the simple knot is an alternate name for the four-in-hand knot. The small knot is not very well-known despite its simplicity. One of the reasons may be the fact that the small knot is not self-releasing, and may annoy people accustomed to four-in-hand and Windsor knots who pull at the tie to untangle the knot. Additionally, some prefer that, if the thin end of the tie should become visible, that it not be "inside out," and the small knot will be this way (this can be remedied by twisting the tie one half turn while tying). Go ahead and throw on a tie.Feel the difference? It's a small thing, but small things are the point. When you're sporting a tie, you can pretty much stroll in anywhere you want; it's like an Admirals Club card that you wear on the outside. Whether you're suiting up for the office or laying out a look for the evening, a tie allows you to pull together the disparate elements of your wardrobe with a touch of texture or complementary color. If you learn to do it correctly—balance the width of the tie against your lapels and shirt collar, find a knot that fits your face—you'll have dressing right all tied up.
