Surgeon’s Knot

This knot quickly joins 2 leaders of equal or unequal diameters. It can also provide a dropper if one of its tags ends is left untrimmed. It can be tied as a double or as a triple by tying 2 or 3 overhand knots. The triple knot is the stronger one of the two.

Surgeons Knot

  1. Assemble the 2 leaders to be joined (tag end opposite).
  2. Make 2 (for the Double Surgeon’s Knot) or 3 (for the Triple Surgeon’s Knot) overhand knots. All are tied in the same direction (like a Granny Knot).
  3. Lubricate, draw ends tightly, avoid overlapping loops, and trim the tag ends.
