First, find the middle of your fishing line and form a loop. Then, take the left side of the line and put it over the top of the right side. Now bring the left side underneath the right side and pull it up through the loop you created in step one (see diagram). Finally, tighten up your knot by pulling on both ends of the line.
Hold on to this twisted part with your left hand, and use your right hand to go back under both lines and make a loop. Now poke that loop through the hole you just created by twisting – it should look like a bow tie. Pull both ends of the line tight, and trim off any excess. Voila! You’ve tied your knot.
The Palomar knot is a simple yet strong knot that can be used to securely tie a braided fishing line to a variety of different types of hooks and lures. To tie the Palomar knot, start by threading the braided fishing line through the eye of the hook or lure. Next, make an overhand loop with the braided fishing line and pull both ends of the line through the loop. Finally, cinch the knot tight by pulling on both ends of the line. Trim off any excess line and you’re ready to go fishing!

1. Cut your braided fishing line to the desired length, leaving about 6 inches of excess.
2. Fold the line in half and form a loop around your index finger.
3. Thread the end of the line through the loop, then pull tight. This will form a basic knot known as an overhand knot.
4. Now take the end of the line and thread it through the loop again, this time going around the entire knot.
5. Pull tight. You’ve now tied a double overhand knot, which is perfect for use with braided fishing line.
To tie a uni knot, start by threading the end of the fishing line through the eye of the hook. Then, wrap the line around itself 5-6 times and pass it through the loop that’s been created. Next, moisten the lines with saliva or water and pull tight. Finally, trim any excess line and you’re all set!
To tie a Trilene knot, start by threading the end of the fishing line through the eye of the hook. Then, make a small loop and pass the line through it (this will create a double line). Moisten the lines with saliva or water and pull tight. Trim any excess line and you’re all set!
Both knots are effective and relatively easy to tie, so it’s really up to your personal preference which one you choose.
