Knowing a range of knots is a good way to untangle yourself from tricky situations in the great outdoors. A good repertoire of knots is also every sailor or angler's way of proving they are worth their salt.
Most of the time, however, you’re only going to need to know a couple of knots really well, and be able to tie them every time without slipping up. The infographic below will give you a list of must-have knots for various situations, and best practices for tying them perfectly every time.
You may need to tie a rope to a tree, you may need to lash something up, or bind two ropes together. Knots serve different purposes and excel in different situations for various reasons. From sailing to mountain climbing, your backyard or the backwoods, knowing three or four knots that do different tasks well is always for the best.
