In the world of fishing there are many types of fishing knots and you should always know at least a few of those knots because they can come in handy when you need a knot that you know will not give out and will stay knotted. One of these knots is the Palomar knot. In order to tie the knot first double 8-12″ of line into a loop and pass it through the eye of the hook, lure or swivel. Tie a very loose overhand knot using the doubled loop and the doubled section of line leading back to the fishing rod. Pass the object to be tied through the remaining loop of the overhand knot and slide the loop up onto the line just above the eye of the hook. Moisten the knot to lessen the friction and pull on the tag and standing ends evenly to snug the knot down and trim the free end of the line to a length of about 3mm. This knot keeps close to all original line strength which makes it a good knot. There are more knots but hopefully this one will help your fishing endeavors.
