PALOMAR KNOT

see here for a video = http://videofishingknots.com/palomar-knot.html

The Palomar Knot is another very simple knot for terminal tackle. It is regarded by the International Game Fish Association consistently as the strongest knot known. It's great virtue is that it can safely be tied at night with a minimum of practice.

  1. Double about 12.5cm of line, and pass through the eye.
  2. Tie a simple Overhand Knot in the doubled line, letting the hook hang loose. Avoide twisting the lines.
  3. Pull the end of loop down, passing it completely over the hook.
  4. Pull both ends of the line to draw up the knot.

The diagram is wrong! The loop the that passes through the tackle should NOT be looped around the shaft but rather below the eye so that there THREE layers of line circling below the eye of the hook. Otherwise you will reduce the strength of the knot!
