Fisherman's Loop

Fisherman's Loop
A fixed loop. Quick to make. The name of the knot comes from the time when the fishermen could not write. Instead of a handwritten letter, the fisherman sent this knot home to his fiancee, with the two knots a bit separated. If it came back with the knots toghether, the answer was... YES!
