[Caption : Half Hitch Jam
Bad.Lik[r?]y. Coarse Fishing
[Ringed Insert : Thumb Knot (H. 31.ii
Braider's Knot "
Breeder's Knot "
Jam Knot. H33.i.[?]
& H.C.Pen[n?]ell Coar [?se?]
Fish. pp 309-10.]

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

H.C. Pen[n?]ell.
Coarse Fish.
p 203. Half Hitch Jam p26.B
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

[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.
