This is the king fish. I'm going to teach you how to make the King fish. Notice it's different than
Notice it's different than jacob's ladder because it
only has three diamonds instead of four
and there are less steps to make the king fish as well,
and there is a trick you can do with your friends
on this one.
To make the king fish, start off with the string over both palms
pick it up off each opposite palm
this is called opening A
next your gonna drop the right pointer
then take the left pointer and reach down
and grab the palm string on the same hand

drop the left pinky and thumb
Let it slide off the pointer
reposition your left hand

so the string is over your palm again
Bring your left hand over to your right
and reaching your finger down
grab the palm string
twist it up and toward you
the next part is a bit tricky
take your right pointer
reach in between
the two thumb strings
and you're going to go over and reach
pick up this first one in front of the pinky

Next, the string that is down here
pinky is going to grab it
left hand is going to grab this one
basically is the first string in front of each pinky
notice I'm keeping this string high on my pointer

i'm going to
put my pinkies in here
the string on the back of my pinkies
is going to slide off
Now I'm going to turn my hands away from me
last thing you have to do you, notice the pointer string is still high on my finger,
now just drop the thumbs.
You've made king fish!
there's a trick you can do to your friend with this. Have your friend put their
finger in the center diamond
ask them to choose left or right
if they pull left
there figure will be caught
but if they choose to the right,
their finger will be free.
Ask your friend to put their finger in the center diamond.

if you pull left
they are caught.
But if your friend has their finger in and you pull to the right, they are free!
Okay one more time:
Start with opening A
Drop the pointer
grab the palm string with your left ponter
reposition your hand
grab the opposite palm string going down
twist it towards you

then grab the string on the pinky, but do it going through the thumb strings.
let me show you that again
put your finger in here, then grab the pinky string
keep it at the tip of your pointer finger

This string here is for my pinky. Put your pinky on that, and on that
the back string pinkies will slide off, then turn my hands away
Drop the thumbs. Please subscribe!
