I prefer these two knots, but when tying on a plain hook I use the snell knot

I have no idea, My grandfather mearly said this is how you tie a lure on and it has worked for me for over 30 years with no problems.

Palomar knot for everything. I have used the Clinch Knot like my father-in-law does, the Palomar is easier for me.

On super braids I use the palomar knot. On mono I use the Improved clinch Knot.

I do find it almost (ha ha) imposable to use the Palomar knot to tie a leader onto a swivel without cutting off the swivel or feeding the rod and reel through the loop of the knot.

the snell, uni, biminy twist, albrite and the nail knot are just few other knot I use.

I use a crawforwd figure 8 knot for mono, and a palomar for braid. And a uni-to-uni for joining sections of leaders. All I've ever needed!

I use a trilene know for mono, palomar for all non-mono. These knots both double up on the eye connection so they are strong. I never "break" at the eye with these knots.

albrite and the nail knot are just few other knot I use.

I saw that Albright knot when I looked up knots and it looked like it would be pretty strong for tying leaders onto braided. Does it work okay for that?

Here's a link to how it's tied:

Mostly palomar, but occasionally a Trilene.

I agree, I use a palomar about 98% of the time on everything. Just a tough knot.

Super braids will slip with this knot. If you want to join a Super braid line to a mono or Fluorocarbon leader use two nail knots. Tie the leader over the Super braid and the Super braid over the leader and slide (jam) them together. If you find the nail knot hard to tie, fly fishing shops have a tool for tieing nail knots and they come with a line clipper.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
