Knots for Horsehair Lines
Very interesting site and something that was completely new to me.
What are the actual knots used to tie segments of horsehair line together please? I would like to try fishing with a thickish horsehair line made in this way from my skin-covered coracle. Tried some hand breaking strain tests on horsetail hairs and combined they are certainly strong enough.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
