Step 1:

First thread the line through the eye of the hook.

Step 2:

Tie a simple overhand loop to form a hair loop.

Step 3:

Adjust the position of your line to get the correct length then hold the line at the eye firmly with you finger.

Step 4:

Whip the main line five or six times around the shank of the hook. The direction of the whip should be away from the hook eye closure.

Step 5:

Hold the whipped section down tight and go back over it in the opposite direction and through the eye of the hook.

Step 6:

Draw down tight slowly moistening the line before doing so.

Possibly the most popular and useful knot in carp fishing. Used to make a rig to attach boilies to an eyed hook to make a safe and reliable rig that works.
