What is the Triple Overhand Knot?

The Triple Overhand Knot is one of the best and most versatile saltwater fishing knots.  It's an extension of the tried and true regular overhand knot and double overhand knot that have been around for eons.  These are basic overhand knots.  To make a triple out of a double, you simply make an additional pass - this makes your knot slightly bigger and more difficult to untie.  It is important to note that because of the additional pass through, your triple overhand knot will have a larger profile than either a regular overhand knot or double overhand knot.
