Fishing Knots For Hooks
Knot #1: The Improved Clinch Knot
The first knot is very simple. We’re going to put this tag in through the eye. And then we’re going to put our finger here. And we’re going to start twisting this line. And we’re going to be using these fingers and handing them off to each other, we’re going to twist this about four to seven times.
So, I’ve pulled six times. now we’re going to take this tag end and put it through this first loop right here. Once through that first loop, we’re going to pull that tag end and put it through this new loop right here.
And now we just tighten the knot. There you go. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the simplest knots to tie because if you take a look. It’s very strong. The line stacks up nicely on top of each other. It holds up really strong, and it takes about two seconds to tie. Improved Clinch Knot is a great general not for any kind of tackle.
Now I prefer to use this not on a straight eye, you see how this eye is coming straight up, versus this one where the eye is bent back. This one gives you a direct pull to the hook versus this one. I will tie a different kind of knot.
Knot #2: The “No-Disappoint” Knot
Knot number two is very simple. We’re going to bend the line in half like this. And give yourself about six inches to work with here. We’re going to put this tip through. Now you see how this is a tag and on this end, we’re gonna use these two fingers and hold it like this.
Meanwhile, we’re going to use these two fingers to pinch this end right here. Now we’re going to twist this about six times and anywhere between four to six weeks. So, now after you twisted it up, you’re going to use this tag end.
We’re going to put it through that first hole and then we’re going to put it through that new hole that we’ve just created right here. Now, we’re going to cinch the whole thing down. There we go. Now, we’re going to tighten it by pulling all the different corners.
Okay, now this one’s a little bit harder because your finger position is a little bit more advanced and the knot is done. That was another quick easy knot. But once you practice tying this a few times, it’s going to be very simple.
Knot #3: The Snell Knot
So, this is the next knot. You see how the eyes turn here. You’re going to want to tie a Snell knot on something like this and this gets a little bit more difficult. So, what you’re going to do is put the tag end through.
Then you’re going to make a loop like this. And you’re going to fold it down on itself just like this. Now we’ll take this tag and wrap it around about let’s say six to eight times and look at my fingers Listening, each time. I wrap it around, I use these two fingers to pinch and they go back under, pinch, back under.
Now, I’m going to hold this tight. So it doesn’t. I don’t lose that. And I’m going to take this tag in and put it through that first loop that I made. Keeping this type, now, we’re gonna pinch this, pull this at the same time. You see how this knot is stacking up like this.
We’re gonna slowly pull that to the shank. There we go. That’s a nice Snell knot right there. And this, I love using this. Because it’s a very strong knot. It gets attached to the shank here itself. You see how it’s attached directly to the shank. If you were to tie that first knot I taught you.
It would all the pressure would be at the tip of this rather than off of the shank right here. So this is the strongest knot. You can tie on to an eye like this. Now, let’s start getting into the more complicated knots here.
Knot #4: The Snell Knot (with a Twist)
This next knot is very similar to this knot. But we’re going to add another few steps. It’s the same thing except for this time. You’re going to want to leave yourself a way longer tag and this time look at how much later I left here.
Okay. Now we’re going to smell this again. 1 2 3….7 8 right. Then we’re going to pinch it here, ran through here. Another tightening of this is important, you have to do it at the same time as each other. So, that it stacks correctly. Okay, now we’ve got this knot right on there. This is just the Snell, I left this long tag end on here. We’re going to push this through.
So, we have it like this. Now, we’re going to twist the line like this. You see that you see how it’s, it’s getting wrapped up in each other like this. This is exactly what we want to happen. Because now we’re forming a thicker leader lie on this. So, we’re going to be twisting these together like this. forming an extra thick leader.
See how this line is braided now and double the thickness. We want this to be nice and thick for fishing on rocks are fishing for toothy critters. So, now to hold this line here, we’re going to tie a knot right here, and then we’re going to try one more using this tag, and there we have it to trim this off.
And this, this is the fourth hardest one right here. So, this is great because if you want a stronger leader line for fishing around rocks or oyster beds or something. This is too thin and unlike a cut. Such as, also like fish that have sharp teeth. It’s going to be a stronger leader line on here, and it’s attached directly to the Snell knot.
Knot #5: The Egg Loop Knot
The last and final knot is the egg loop knot. So, now this is one of the most complicated knots that I know because it just has multiple steps involved in it. So this one, you’re going to need to cut your line your leader line to the length that you want. So, I’m going to tie mine about two feet. We’ve got two feet of line here.
Here’s what we’re going to do. Push the line through the eye again. Right. Now we’re going to pinch this down right here. You see this is just this. Pinch this step. Okay. Now we’re going to take this end, and we’re going to wrap this about seven times 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.
We’re going to use these two fingers, these two right here, pinch it down right here. And now we’re going to stick this tag end through the eye. This way, it’s important that it goes this way. Okay, now you see this line right here. This line right here that I just put through.
We’re also going to pinch that down with the other tag and that going to pinch that down, keeping this tag and like this. Now, we’re going to take this that we’re pinching with our pinkies, an index finger, and we’re just going to continue wrapping that around.
And we’re going to do this another 10 times. Okay, not is almost done. Now we’re going to pull this through. You want to do this while pinching and holding everything tightly. Because you don’t want to lose they’re not. Now, we’re going to tighten it down.
Okay. This is a really nice not, because it serves a very, very special purpose. Let’s trim it up. And I’ll show you. So, it just looks like an ordinary knot. But look at this, this is the really awesome part. The really awesome part is that now you can put your bait right here.
This is called an egg loop, not what you put in here are your soft baits such as crab or clam, and you pinch it down like this. And when you cast it. It’s not stuck on the hook. It’s actually being held by this fishing line right here. But this is a knot that you use to use for very soft and delicate fishing baits.
