Improved Clinch Knot

Welcome to The FinTalk Fishing Knots details page for tying the Improved Clinch Knot . Follow the directions step by step and practice tying any particular knot over and over until you have it mastered. Learn it and practice it so when you are faced with changing lures or rigs in the middle of a hot bite you can quickly tie your knot and get your line back in the water. Sometimes the bite is only on for a little while so getting caught up with tying and re-tying rigs can cost valuable fish time. Remember not only should you be able to tie your knot fairly quick but you should be able to tie your fishing knot properly fairly quick. Nothing is worse than having what you know was a big daddy fish and losing him only to wind up your line to see your knot failed. It is enough to ruin your day, especially if the fishing is slow. So enjoy learning to tie these knots and for more detailed instructions check out "Fishing Knots and Rigs' by Geoff Wilson.

KNOT NAME:

Improved Clinch Knot Sometimes called The "Fisherman's Knot"

KNOT DESCRIPTION:

The Improved Clinch Knot is has become one of the most popular knots for tying terminal tackle connections. It is quick and easy to tie and is strong and reliable. The knot can be difficult to tie in lines in excess of 30 lb test. Five+ turns around the standing line is generally recommended, four can be used in heavy line. This not is not recommended with braided lines.

 

This is an easy knot to tie. Use this knot to tie a hook to the end of a fairly light-weight fishing line. The Clinch knot can be tied quickly and is one of the easiest knots to use for attaching monofilament nylon fishing line to the eye of a hook. To help the turns tighten snugly on top of each other, moisten the monofilament nylon line before working the knot into shape.

Fishing Knot Details
Knot Instructions
1) Pass the line through the hook eye. Take several turns around the main line and pass the end back between the hook eye and the first turn. Some anglers loop the main line through the eye of the hook or swivel twice for added strength. Use 5 turns if your line is under 15kg (30lb), 3-4 turns would be sufficient if the line is over 15kg (30lb).
2) Pass the tag end back through the large loop.
3) Lubricate with saliva and pull firmly with steady pressure.
