Haymaker's Hitch

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

So called as it was used to tie down the hay on the back of the waggon. But can be used to make a very tight line between two trees for your basha.
It is so tight as it works in the same way as a block and tackle

1. Tie of one end to the first tree. Then tie a Sheepshank in the rope.
