How Do You Tie a Craft Fishing Line?

Craft fishing lines are an incredibly important part of a fisherman’s arsenal. Not only do they help you catch fish, but they also provide a great way to show off your skills as an angler.

But in order to get the most out of your craft fishing line, you need to know how to tie it properly.

The first step in tying a craft fishing line is to make sure you have all the necessary materials. This includes the line itself, a pair of pliers, and a hook.

Once you have gathered all of these items, begin by cutting the line into two even pieces about four feet long each. Take one piece and thread it through the eye of the hook. Then use your pliers to secure the knot at the end.

Next, take the other piece of line and tie an overhand knot at one end. This will secure the hook in place and give you something to work with when tying future knots. Begin by threading this piece through the eye of the hook as well and then tie another overhand knot at that end.

Once both pieces are secured with an overhand knot, you can begin tying any type of knot you want on top of that. Popular knots for craft fishing lines include loop knots, figure-eight knots, and clinch knots. All of these types of knots can be used for different purposes such as attaching lures or weights.


Tying a craft fishing line is not difficult once you understand how it works and have all the necessary materials on hand. With practice and patience, anyone can master this skill and make sure their line is strong enough for whatever type of fish they are trying to catch!
