How Do You Tie a Knot in a Fishing Line That Won’t Slip?

Knowing how to tie a knot in a fishing line that won’t slip is an important skill for any angler. It ensures that the line won’t slip and the fish won’t get away. There are many different types of knots for tying a fishing line, but one of the most reliable is the Palomar knot.

The first step in tying a Palomar knot is to thread the line through the eye of your hook or lure. Next, take the end of the line and double it back until you have about six inches of doubled line.

Now tie an overhand knot with the doubled end, leaving about an inch or so between where you started and ended tying your loop. After completing this step, thread this loop through the eye of your hook or lure again.

Once you’ve done this, take the end of your line and pass it through the loop three times, making sure that each pass goes in opposite directions from each other. After making all three passes, pull on both ends of your line until you have pulled all three passes tight against each other. Finally, moisten your knot and then pull on both ends to draw it tight against your hook or lure.

Conclusion: The Palomar knot is one of the most reliable knots for tying a fishing line that won’t slip. To tie a Palomar knot you must first thread your line through the eye of your hook or lure twice, then tie an overhand knot with about an inch left at its tail before pulling it back through again to secure it in place before making three passes with your main line through this loop in opposite directions from each other before pulling them tight against each other and finally moistening and tightening it against your hook or lure.
