Just wondering what kind of knots everyone out there ties.
You know,, the one where you spin it around five times and stick it through the loop.:coolgleam
Palomar knot...the easiest, strongest knot out there.
I use four, the palomar, for terminal tackle…small lures, swivels that type of thing.
Improved clinch knot for larger lures and leaders off a swivel.
Nail knot for line to line…making leaders for fly fishing.
Surgeons knot for loops, or tying on a dropper, also useful for fly fishing.
Only one: Palomar!
well not being to knowledgable on knot tying i almost always use the polymer knot. sorry about the spelling.
I forgot to mention the knot for the super slick braided lines...the double granny with a twist!
I've tried others, but always go back to the improved clinch knot...was on a palomar kick for awhile. I guess it's what you grew up with and is the easiest.
For tying two lines together I use a (I think it's called) a surgeon's or blood knot.
Anyway, Babe Winkelman uses the improved clinch...good enough for me.
animatedknots.com has a nice website that shows you step by step how to tie a new knot for fishing or any kind of knot. I found it pretty cool.
Mine is the Palomar.
Quail I didn't know there was that many knots. I am with pigeon twist it around 5 or 6 times and stick it back threw the hoop.
....and you blamed the rattle traps for you losing all those fish...
Now I liked that!!!!
