Palomar Knot

The Palomar Knot is quick to tie and sufficiently strong for most fishing situations. It is a general-purpose connection used in joining fishing line to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures. The double wrap of line through the eyelet provides a protective cushion for added knot strength, and is ideal for use with braided lines (SpideWire Fusion).

Step 1

Double the line and form a loop three to four inches long. Pass the end of the loop through the hook's eye.

Step 2

Holding standing line between thumb and finger, grasp loop with free hand and form a simple overhand knot.

Step 3

Pass hook through loop and draw line while guiding loop over top of eyelet.

Step 4

Pull tag end of line to tighten knot snugly and trim tag end to about 1/8 inch.
