Trilene Knot

The Trilene Knot is a strong reliable connection, that resists slippage and premature failures. This knot uses two wraps of monofilament through the hook eye to increase its strength and durability. It can be used in joining line to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures.

The knot's unique double wrap design and ease of tying constantly yeilds a strong, dependable connection. The breaking strength is very high for this knot; very close to 100% for some lines and diameters and almost always above 90%.

Step 1

Run end of line through eye of hook or lure and double back through the eye a second time.

Step 2

Loop around standing part of line 5 or 6 times. Thread tag end between the eye and the coils as shown.

Step 3

Tighten knot with a steady, even motion without hesitation. Trim tag end leaving at least 1/8 inch.

Step 4

The finished product. Do not cut the tag end too close. The knot has a tendency to untie itself after many casts.
