First, make sure that the swivel is large enough for the line you are using. For example, a #6 swivel is too small for 12-pound test line, but it would be fine for 6-pound test line.

Next, tie a clinch knot around the barrel of the swivel. (The clinch knot is the most popular way to attach fishing line to a hook or lure). Finally, trim off any excess line.

Now you know how to tie a swivel on fishing line! This simple knot will help keep your line from tangling. Give it a try the next time you go fishing.

There are many ways to tie a swivel on fishing line. One way is to use a clinch knot. Another way is to use a palomar knot.

Whichever knot you choose, make sure that it is tight and will not come loose while you are fishing. also, make sure the swivel fits snugly on the line so that it does not spin freely.

There are a few different ways to tie a swivel on fishing line. The best way to do it will depend on the type of swivel you’re using and the type of fishing line you have.

One popular way to tie a swivel on fishing line is to use a simple overhand knot. Another option is to use a clinch knot. There are also special knots that can be used to attach a swivel to monofilament or braided fishing line. Whichever method you choose, make sure the knot is secure and won’t come loose while you’re casting or reeling in your catch.

There are a few different ways to do this, but one of the most popular methods is the Palomar knot. To tie the Palomar knot, you first need to make a loop with your line.

Then, take the end of the line and make a second loop around the first loop. Make sure these loops are tight against each other. Next, take the end of the line and put it through the first loop. Now, pull both loops tight. Finally, trim off any excess line.

There are a few different ways to do this, but one of the most popular methods is to use a Palomar knot. To tie the Palomar knot, first pass the line around the post of the swivel. Next, take the end of the line and make a loop that passes over the line coming from the post. Finally, tuck the end of the line under both strands of rope and pull tight.

There are a few different ways to do this, but one easy way is to tie a basic overhand knot. Take the tag end of the line and make a loop, then take the main part of the line and put it over the loop.

Now, tuck the tag end underneath and pull tight. You should now have a knot on each side of the loop. To attach the swivel, put it through the hole in the center of the knot and twist it around until it’s tight. You can also use pliers to hold onto the swivel while you twist if needed.
