Palomar Knot

Welcome to The FinTalk Fishing Knots details page for tying the Palomar 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:

The Palomar Knot

KNOT DESCRIPTION:

A popular and easy to tie knot for small terminal tackle connections. It is one of the few recommended knots for use with braided lines. There are a few knots that you should learn to help make your fishing more secure.The Palomar is one of the easier ones.

 

The Palomar Knot is quick to tie and sufficiently strong for most fishing situations. It is a general-purpose connection used in joining fishing line to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures. The double wrap of line through the eyelet provides a protective cushion for added knot strength, and is ideal for use with braided lines (SpideWire Fusion).
