Knots

Simple Question... What knot is the best to tie the line onto the leader? Thanks

Either the palomar knot or the trilene knot arethe ones I use. Usually I use the palomar to attach the swivel to the main line, mainly beause its easiest. Then I will use the trilene knot to attach the leader to the swivel. Both knots I have good luck with.

I think that you will find the general concensus to be the Palomar knot. For me, it is the Trilene knot. I can tie it in seconds and most of all, I have confidence in the knot. Years ago, my dad always put a dab of superglue on the knot as well and I continue to do that as well. Does the knot need it.....no, just a habit I am into.

Both good knots, and Bret's right, the Palomar will get the most votes. Super Uni Knot for us though, 5 shoulders, pass the line through the eye of the leader twice. Never have one give and you can tie it in your sleep (or in the dark). Easier than running the leader through the palomar too.

Bucher Power Knot all the way for me... It combines Palomar with Clinch... no superglue needed... no knot at the tag end needed... can cut the tag as close to the knot without worrying about it slipping... and its easy to do!!!

The Bucher power knot is the best I have seen. It takes a little practice to get it cinched down evenly but I have to cut the knots off every time.

I used a search engine to look up Bucher power knot and it came up on the top of the first page. It is a diagram in Bucher's web site.

Good Luck

Hiya -

I've used the Uni Knot first with Dacron, then with braid, for years. Never had a knot failure - ever. Works for me, and easier to tie with long trolling leaders or stiff wire leaders than a Palomar...

My $.02

Cheers,

I have "shaky" hands and if i can tie this knot, it must be pretty simple!

    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
