Fishing Knot FAQ

Fishing knots are essential for any angler – whether you’re just starting out or have been fishing for years. Knowing how to tie different knots is important for attaching your line to your reel, lures, and hooks; as well as joining two lines together. While there are many different knots used in fishing, below are five of the most popular and versatile knots that every angler should know how to tie:

1. The Basic Knot – also known as the Improved Clinch knot, is one of the most commonly used knots in fishing. It’s easy to tie and provides a strong connection between your line and hook.

2. The Palomar Knot – often used with a braided line, this knot provides a strong connection between your line and lure.

3. The Uni Knot – also known as the Duncan Loop, this knot is versatile and can be used for attaching your line to a reel, hook, or lure.

4. The Surgeon’s Knot – perfect for joining two lines together.

5. The Snell Knot – this knot is typically used for fishing with live bait, as it provides a strong hold and keeps the bait in place.
