Knots to Know: The Palomar Knot for Tying on a Hook or Lure


Another line-to-hook or lure knot, the Palomar knot is fairly easy.

The Palomar has made a name for itself in the fishing knot biz as a trustworthy, simple knot that doubles up the line and creates a strong knot worth memorizing.

We’ll always argue over the best knot for specific situations, but as anglers, we should know there’s nothing wrong with learning something new and trying it out to see if you like it.

Share this with someone who doesn’t use the Palomar, and challenge them to learn it. You never know, it just might become the knot that attaches the hook that gets the fish that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
