Loop the backing around the reel arbor and tie a double overhand knot at the end of the loose end.
With the loose end tie an overhand knot around the backing line.
Tighten the overhand knot around the backing line while bringing the double overhand knot at the loose end close to the backing line.
Pull on the backing until both knots touch and slide hard against the arbor. Job done!
Thread the leader tippet through the eye of the hook, leaving at least four inches (10 cm) of spare material to complete the knot.
Wrap the loose end of the tippet around the leader five times.
Bring the loose end of the tippet over to the hook, and insert it through the loop of nylon you have now made in front of the eye of the hook.
Bring the loose end back up and pass it through the new loop you created in step 3.
Pull the knot down slowly, using a thumb nail to bring the turns close behind the eye. Do not pull tight yet...
Spit on the knot to lubricate it.
Tighten the knot by pulling on the leader with the hook bend secured on the ring of your scissors. Jiggle to fully tighten the knot.
Now trim off the spare end.
