This is another excellent sliding loop knot that's perfect for securing a rope to something with an eyelet, such as an anchor or a fish hook. This one is especially easy to tie and it's strong to boot.
To tie this knot, I first placed my rope on the table and made sort of a half loop with the rope's end.
Next, I made a loop with the working end and placed the working end over the standing part.
After that, I brought the working end around the standing part and fed it through the loop I made earlier.
And then I went around a few more times.
And finally, after pulling on the loop some, the wraps tightened and left me with a perfect Arbor knot.
