There are several different type of fishing knots you can use, there are two types of fishing knots that are the best.
Palomer Fishing Knot:
The Palomar Knot is easy to tie correctly, and consistently the strongest knot known to hold terminal tackle.
1. Double about 5" of line and pass the loop through the eye of fishing hook.
2. Tie a standard over the hand knot in the double line. Try not to twist the fishing line too much.
3. Take the Loop End and pass it over the hook.
4. Tighten the line, by pulling both ends of the knots. You want to keep the line wet when you tighten it. This will keep the line from weakening do to the friction.
Your done, make sure that the eye of the hook is not caught up in the knot, it happens, and you can loose a good fish. There you go, thats all it takes to tie one of the best fishing knots there are. I like this fishing knot, because once you do it enough, you can do it with little light.
The Trilene Knot is a strong knot that can be used to join line to swivels, snaps, hooks and lures. The Trilene Knot is fairly easy to learn and is a very strong knot that resists slippage.
Directions for tying the Trilene Knot:
- Thread the line through the eye of the hook or lure and double back through the eye a second time.
- Holding the hook or lure in your left hand, and the standing line in your right hand, loop the tag end around the standing line 6 times. Then feed the tag end through the loop made in step 1.
- Tighten the knot by pulling gently on the tag end and the standing line simultaneously. Moisten the knot with water as you tighten to lubricate the line, allowing the knot to slide more easily while tightening. Trim tag end to 1/8 inch.
- Tying the Trilene Knot is complete.
