(Also called the "Bimini Twist" or "20-Times- Around Knot") The Rollover Knot has

feet long with lines through 50-pound- test, or 30 feet long with lines exceeding
50-pound-test (those being the maximum double-line lengths allowed under
International Game Fish Association rules). The value of the double line in big-
game fishing is this: When a fish has been brought to boatside, the double line is
