    This has got to be one of the most useful sites I've found. I immediately bought the app for my iPhone. Great work and thanks!

    Awesome site! I found it as I needed to refresh myself on the Albright knot to attach flying to backing for my new 12 weight.

    Your animation is absolutely amazing and makes it look very simple. It's your fault but now I have to try every one and find a use for them. Thank you (really)

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how thoroughly IMPRESSED I am by your website. All this information, the way it's organized, the how-to step by step, WAY TO GO!!! Double thumbs up from here!

    No need to reply. Our local paper (Valley News, West Lebanon, NH) had an article which listed as the best site of the week. I might have said best site of the year. Crisply designed, concise explanations, and of course splendid animation makes this site superb. Ironically I had just started my daily rant about the "death of practical knowledge" thanks to TV, x-boxes, i-pods and other virtual pursuits, when along comes and makes me realize that the internet CAN be used to restore what our grand parents knew and did every day of their practical lives.

    Great site! I've been a fan for a couple of years now & spread the word to all who I think would like it.

    I want to say thank you for a great website and your app was worth every penny. Both have helped me expand the knots I can tie without looking up how and helps me continue to reinforce the muscle memory when I do forget.
