Now that the new forum has the capability to imbed video links into the posts, I thought it might be nice to have a few links to some helpful YouTube videos. In this post, I will try to gather a series of knot tying tutorials.

Good stuff, Ray. Clear, concise, and potentially valuable.

Over time I will add more knot tying videos above.

The next time we have a gathering, perhaps we can record a few of our own tutorials.

Fantastic. This new video potential is awesome. Not that anyone wants to see videos of me sticking with my clinch knot for every application. :D
