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.
