The Palomar Knot is a quick and easy fishing knot to tie. It is a very strong hitch knot for freshwater fishing. It’s a versatile knot that ties the fishing line directly to hooks, lures, snaps, and swivels.
Below are the 4 simple steps with pictures to tying the Palomar Knot:
Double 4 to 6 inches tag end back beside the standing part. This forms a which we push through the eye of a hook or ring of the swivel.
Next make an Overhand Knot with the loop. You have an option to add more twists in the loop if desired.
Slip the hook, swivel or lure through the original loop. At the same time, hold the tag end and standing part together, tightening the line until the loop clears the object. Moistening the knot reduces friction and tie a tighter knot.
Once the object clears the loop, continue pulling the tag end and standing part while holding the object in the other hand. The knot will form and seat securely to the tied object. Trim off the excess line and you are set for fishing!
