The Palomar Fishing Knot

For Joining Line To A Fish Hook

The Palomar Knot is easy to tie correctly, and consistently the strongest knot known to hold terminal tackle.

1. Double about 4" of line and pass the loop through the eye of fishing hook.
2. Let the fishing hook hang loose, and tie an overhand knot in the doubled line.

Avoid twisting the lines and do NOT tighten the knot.

3. Pull the loop end of the line far enough to pass it over the hook, swivel or lure.

Make sure the loop passes completely over the attachment.

4. Pull both the tag end and the standing line until the knot is tightened. Clip off the tag end of the fishing line.
