    Great website I am a Scouter working on my Woodbadge Ticket. This is the best site for knots for the scouts. Thanks! Now the older scouts have a great resource to go to when they need it.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your knot website is an answer to my prayers. I was a Scouter for 13 years, and wish this site was available then. I have spent many hours teaching my sons and other Boy Scouts the proper way to tie the knots, that you so nicely illustrate. I am now a vertical caver, and am into Cave Rescue. Your Climbing, and Rescue pages have been very useful in training new people whose lives including my own, and others often depend on their ability to tie knots properly.

    FANTASTIC SITE !!!!! You have done a great job. I have been fishing and boating for 40+ years and tried to explain so many knots... My wife and I recently took a college class (field science and investigation) that concluded with a ten day trip on the A.T. and back country through NC. Georgia and Tenn. Part of our grade was based on knot tying which was taught in class, hands on. This makes it so much easier to understand the basics. We have forwarded the website to our professors to help teach the 19 year olds using your outstanding examples.... Thank you so much.

    Your animated knots site is absolutely fantastic! Information is amazingly complete, very clear and useful. The site design could hardly be better for its purpose. I will be visiting very often to practice my knots and learn new ones. Congratulations, and continue with the good work!
