Palomar Knot

Palomar Knot

What It Does: Attaches a hook or other terminal tackle to your line.

Why It’s Useful: Among the strongest knots for its purpose, the Palomar is also fairly easy to tie.

How to Tie It:

1. Double four inches of line into a loop and pass it through the eye of your hook.

2 & 3. Allow the hook to dangle, and tie a loose over hand knot in the doubled line, being careful NOT to twist the lines or tighten the knot.

4. Pull the line by its looped end far enough to pass it over the hook, swivel or lure.

5.Pulling at both ends of the line, tighten the knot. Clip off the tag end.
