    I am going to put up some links for visual instruction on how to tie the knots involved in making up Tapered T-Lines.

    First, the Double Uni-knot: http://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/double-uni-knot/

    When tying line sections together with the Double Uni-knot, it is best to tie the first half of the knot about an inch shy of the length you want that section of the tapered line to be. Once the first half is completed, you can check the measurement again and adjust the knot position to about 1/2 inch shy of the final length you are shooting for by sliding the knot along the length of unknotted line, then tie the second half of the knot a 1/2 inch or so beyond the first half and pull the two halves together.

    Second, the Surgon's Loop Knot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfQ4DbIUJWo

    In the film above the doubble Surgon's Loop is shown, a Trippel Surgon's Loop just takes the loop end through the over hand knot one more time.

    Third, the Perfection Loop Knot: http://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/perfection-loop/

    Fourth, the Loop-To-Loop connection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwLruXZCelE

    Sorry about the redundancy of showing the Perfect Loop tying sequence again but this is done with better knot tying technique than the earlier sequence and shows the Loop-To-Loop connection as well.
