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).
Double the line and form a loop three to four inches long. Pass the end of the loop through the hook's eye.
Holding standing line between thumb and finger, grasp loop with free hand and form a simple overhand knot.
Pass hook through loop and draw line while guiding loop over top of eyelet.
Pull tag end of line to tighten knot snugly and trim tag end to about 1/8 inch.
