How to Tie Bunny Ears for Fishing

A bunny ear knot is a knot with double loops. It is mostly used on ropes which need two loops at the end. Therefore, if you want to tie bunny ears for fishing, it means that you require the two loops to carry your fish and the container which contains fish food. These two loops will help you carry both these things at the same time. However, you will need to learn the perfect way to tie bunny ears if you want to fish in the most perfect way possible.

Things Required:

– Rope


  • 1

    First, you would need a rope to make the two loops. Grab a rope and start off from any point. Make sure that the rope is large enough to allow you to make the two loops you are aiming for.

  • 2

    Double the rope and still make sure it’s large enough to hold a double loop.

  • 3

    Turn the rope the other way and keep twisting it around itself. It should create an “X” in the area where the doubled rope crosses itself.

  • 4

    Now put the rope in such a way that the loops you have made are facing downwards.

  • 5

    Pass both the lines right underneath the first loop you have made and grab the rope from the other side. The rope sticking out should be grabbed and twisted.

  • 6

    Now observe how you will need to pass the rope that is sticking out. You must carefully position the first loop so you can twist the rope in order to make the other one.

  • 7

    Grab the twisted rope that is sticking out in the fifth step.

  • 8

    Hold it and twist it more. Now move it towards the doubled rope right on the other side. Once you have passed it over the double line, you will observe how both the loops have taken a shape.

    You will be required to tighten this knot as it can easily get disfigured and then you will have to go through all the hassle again. Therefore, just push the rope that is sticking out and drag it towards the middle of the knot. This will help you tighten things up perfectly.

    Since there can be a bit of slack in the knot that you have tied, just try to pull both the loops so there are no slacks left. This will further help you in making the perfect size of the loop so you can tie your fish and can in these two loops.
