Fishing knots are designed to be tied in monofilament or braided fishing line and to run through the eyes and rings of a fishing rod or rig. Fishing knots are intended to be pulled extremely tight before use. To ensure the knot tightens smoothly, and to avoid generating heat, the knot should be moistened with water first. The most conveniently available source of water is saliva - which is probably used more than anything else! When available, a better lubricant is vegetable oil.
The ends of most fishing knots can, and should, be trimmed closely against the knot. The best tool for the purpose is a nail clipper.
The Uni Knot
The Uni Knot works well with both braided and monofilament fishing lines, and with practice is fairly easy to tie in the dark.
The Clinch Knot
The Clinch knot is one of the most widely used fishing knots. It provides a good method of securing a fishing line to a hook, lure, or swivel.
The Bimini Twist
The Bimini Twist is used to create a strong loop for use as a double-line leader on the end of a fishing line that can then be used for a loop-to-loop connection.
The Nail Knot
The Nail Knot is an important fishing knot used to join two lines of different diameters.
