    Want to go knot crazy? Find a copy of Ashleys Book of Knots.
    There are 7000 knots to play with!!!
    It took me years to learn to tie a bowline knot. Finally someone taught me the up through the bunny hole around the tree and back down the bunny hole thing. It worked but for a while i wanted to chop down the tree and kill the bunny.
    Now i can tie it regulary one handed left handed and left handed one hand.
    Look at the bushclass badic knots for a start also.

    Square Knot - Just to easy to not have that one handy. Way better than a granny knot!

    Taught Line Hitch - Great for ridge line, tie outs ect. Easy to learn, quick to tie. Super useful.

    Prussic - If your going to hang a tarp over a ridge line, you should learn this. Makes tensioning the tarp super easy.

    Canadian Jam Knot - I've heard it described as a bushcraft zip tie. Easy to learn and quick to tie.

    Lashing - Whether you're setting up a tripod for cooking or putting together a frame for shelter learning proper lashing technique is paramount.

    Clove Hitch - You'll need this to start and end you lashings with.
