One of the classical nodes is the so-called eight. It is widely used not only in fishing. By right this node can be called marine, and mountaineering, and industrial. It is suitable for many other activities. The "eight" knot is used for domestic and work purposes, and some people, having acquired skill, quickly tie it at a subconscious level. Let's try to consider the technique of tying this knot, as well as to understand its advantages and reasons for widespread use.
Mountaineering is a separate topic, because the "eight" knot is used in this area for fastening safety ropes, as a stopper, etc., which indicates its advantages. In addition, the G-8 is used as a basis for knitting other, more complex knots (there are more than a dozen of them), as well as doubling the rope. There are various modifications of it (for example, the so-called counter eight), but the nodal principle of such bindings is unchanged.
Returning to the theme of the application of the "eight" in fishing practice, it is worth noting that knots for a hook, tied in this way, are distinguished by their remarkable strength, although they are used quite rarely.
Thus, we can conclude that the "eight" node somehow occupies an honorable place in the activities of fishermen, builders, sailors, mountaineers and representatives of other professions. Mastering the knitting of this knot will help in solving a wide variety of everyday tasks and performing various jobs.
