Palomar Knot – Step by Step

One of the simplest, easiest, and strongest fishing knots to tie is the Palomar Knot. This knot is best used on braided line because it does not lose much strength in the line.  You can use this knot to tie hooks, swivels, flys, or every day use on other items around the house or at work. This knot is quick and can be tied easily if you are fishing at night.

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.
