favorite knot

Recommended Posts

Guest

I just arrived on this site and noticed were crawlerman lost a fish due to a tangled knot which brought to mind this topic.
I use what I call the double improved clinch knot. We know how to tie a clinch knot,right? We know how to tie an improved clinch, right? Now, just double your line and run it through the eyelet and tie an improved clinch knot. When snugged and trimmed properly it will look like some kind of hitch. Been using it as long as I can remember and I've NEVER broken it off on a fish.

that is a great knot! i use the pallamar for just about every thing .they are both great. the biggest thing i have found is to wet the line before drawing it tight. del

When I am fishing with the new braid lines I tie a combination of the two knots... I double the line and pas it threw the eye, Then twist like in the improved clinch knot.. then pas the tag loop threw the lead eye, like in the improved clinch, then pas the loop over the bait in the palomar... Never had this knot break either.!

My favorite knot is "not me", as in "who's gonna mow the lawn Saturday?"
"not me - goin' fishin'"

I like the 'Trilene' knot, or simple clinch when it's too dark or the line's too light to see the back-loop. Haven't broke one of those, either.

Ever since the Mighty LeVerne Oveson taught me how to tie a snell - that's my favorite knot.

The best knot is one that you can tie the right way everytime. I use the cross polamer for almost everything and it works for me.

I use a Palomar knot for almost everything. Sometimes I will use the Rapala knot for better lure action.

I typically use two different knots. I use the snell knot for plain hooks, and the improved clinch knot for any type of lures. I have never had a knot let loose on a fish. I do check my line and leader for wind knots, as I have lost fish to those dang things.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
