Tying 3 strand eye splice

Trying to learn how to tie an eye splice and visited a couple of web sites that explain how to do this.
Still having problems knowing what goes under where!!
Does anyone know of a good web site that explains this clearly??
cheers Dal

Many thanks!
Wanted to make up a tow bridle with a couple of snap hooks; so will give it a try.

You ll wonder what the mystery is when you get it sussed!

Remember when I was a young trawlerman and the local 'old' salt taught me to splice wire rope! Cost me 2 bottles of Beck's beer!
