Fishing Knot Library: Tips & Tutorials on How to Tie a Fishing Knot


The Palomar Knot is easy to tie, exceptionally strong, and very popular with bass fishing pros for tying on jigs and worm hooks.  It's somewhat awkward to tie when using lures with treble hooks, but it is the recommended knot for braided lines.
1)  Double about four inches of line and pass the loop through the eye.
2)  Let the lure or hook hang loose and tie and overhand knot in the doubled line.  Avoid twisting the line and don't over tighten.
3)  Pull the loop of line far enough to pass it over the lure or hook.  Make sure the loop passes completely over this attachment.
4)  To tighten, pull the tag end while holding the standing line.  Clip the tag end.
