I was going to do Bush knots all in one section but trying something different by breaking up post.

Lashings (Pole to Pole)

Square lashing – binds two poles together at a 90 degree angle

Diagonal lashing – braces a rigid structure

Shear lashing – joins two poles together to form legs ie instead of three legged tripod only two legs for a tree less tarp set up.

Round lashing – securing two poles together to form an end join

Tripod Lashing – as name suggests for making a tripod

Hitches (Cordage to Pole)

Truckers Hitch (Improved) – see part 3

Round turn and two half hitches – to secure the end of a rope to a fixed object

Arbour knot or Canadian jam – to conserve cordage instead of lashing. many uses geat knot to know

Buntline hitch – I rarely use this unless I have an eyelet ring to tie off to could be deleted from list, but handy to know

Clove hitch variation constrictor – to end lashings

larks head – beginning of a prusic, net making,

Figure 8 – used for hoisting heavy loads into trees could also use a Bowline

Overhand knot- used as a stopper knot

Evank hitch – see part 3

Timber hitch – I now use this to start lashings

Taut Tarp hitch – see part 3

Knots (cordage to Cordage)

Fishermans – joins two ropes the same size

Bowline – most usefull knot to learn

Sheet bend – joins two ropes of differing or similar sizes

Prusik knot – the first knot I was ever taught in climbing. A slipping lock knot. Can slide if held by the knot but under strain from the standing end will lock up. Used on tarp ridgelines.

Slip knot – snares

Square knot – most basic knot used in daily life

Triline knot – I only use this one for fishing hooks. only knot I used since I was a teen for fishing.

Whipping knot – prevent end of rope from fraying, also used to make flys and bind fishing rod eyes.

Jam knots
