Trilene Knot

What it does: The Trilene Knot can be used to join line to swivels, snaps, hooks and lures.

Why it’s useful: Easy to tie and very strong, the Trilene Knot resists slippage better than most simple knots.

How to tie it:

1. Thread the line through the eye of the hook or lure, then double back through the eye a second time.

2.Holding the hook or lure in your left hand, and the standing line in your right hand,wrap the tag end around the standing line 6 times, then pass the end through the loopcreated where you doubled back in step 1.

3. Pull gently on the tag end and the standing line to tighten, moistening it with water while you do so to lubricate the line (allowingthe loopsto slide together more easily). Trim tag end to 1/8 inch, and you’re done.
