Bowline

Bowline
A fixed loop, very safe. You can use it when climbing and lifesaveing etc. If your life depends on this knot, you should do an extra knot to make it safer. Otherwise it will not be safe enough, especially if the rope is new. Often learnt by thinking of the end as a rabbit, and the loop as its hole, and as Elma Fudd would say:
The wabbit gows up, out of his hole, wound the back of the twee, and back down into his buwwow.
