It resembles a
little the fisherman's knot.
For attatching gut lines to
bare hooks

It may be regarded as
a weaver with the end
a put through from
the reverse
side.

What knot is this?
It is an overhand + a bight,
but class it.

[Vertical Caption : The end a in the
[1/2] hitch jam lies along
the shank : in the weaver
it sticks out. This appears
to be the reason
why one is
tight]

[Vertical Caption : good for bare hooks
& the other for flies.]

[Caption : revolved
of course it
can be reproduced
from this
]

The iron loop in the eye of the hook bent at an
angle which favours jamming, but it will jam
also on cord

I think it must be classed as a kind of weaver, since
it acts in this way.
