Especially if you're just learning the palomar is a great knot. It's easy to tie with light line and it holds tight. If you're tiying a leader on tie to the swivel first then the lure and you can use a palomar on both ends.

how do you tie a Polomar knot on a tiny little sunfish jig? I tried a couple years ago and gave up.

Ah that's easy, provided you've got good eyesight and nimble fingers.

Try tying one on a rapala or something if you want a PITA.

I always tie an improved clinch for mono and palomars for magic lines.

I use the trilene knot for everything. I guess the palomar knot might be easy enough for little panfish jigs. Anything much bigger and it seems like it would be a pain.

It's important to re-tie especially with light line (2 lb test). If I get lazy and don't re-tie my line will break where the line is looped through the jig's eye rather than at the knot itself.
