whats your favorite way to tie on a hook and the strongest?
The snelled hooks are probably the strongest, and I also use the palomar knot.
I'll call mine the Glover knot due to not knowing if it has a name or not, if so let me know the correct name, thanks. I make two loops through the eye, then take the end and go around my leader and through the two loops twice. I have tried pulling it loose but the leader breaks first so figure it has to be a good knot to use and easy to tie for me.
not sure what its called, but for mono over 10 lb test it has never slipped and i can easily tie it at night. I think its similar to the albrieght knot that i use to tie 2 pieces of mono together, or make bobber stops. i run it through the eye of the hook, make a loop with tag end alongside mainline, wrap the tag end around the mainline and through the loop 7 times, hold the mainline above the loop and tag end with one hand, and the hook with other and loosely pull the knot together. now while holding the hook, pull the mainline which will slide and cinch the knot down to the hook eye and look kind of like a hangmans noose. pull tag end tight and clip off.
No doubt...my favorite would be Snelled.
I've used the Improved Clinch knot for several years. No problems.
if the eye is bent snelled is the way to go but a straight eye I like the palomyar it is easier to tie at night for me. SE YOU AL ON THE FISH BANK SOME TIME
I have reciently changed to snell knotts on my circle hooks and I tie them onto leaders sitting at home watching tv.
polomar knots are all I will ever use, very simple and they DONT break.
I snell all my hooks. I use circle hooks exclusively so the snelled hook actually improves the roll of the circle hook into the jaw.
I've used improved clinch knots, and occasionally "trilene knots" with good success and few breaks. I will be learning snelling though, now that I"m gonna be using more circle hoods.
I use palomar knots only,except when I tie on a drop sinker and then I use the trilene knot.I have never lost a fish using a palomar knot.IMO they are the best.
I always snell my hooks and tie the leaders on with a uni-knott, at both ends of the swivle (Mainline and Leader)!!!
Palomar knot here!!! :thumbsup:
It's a very simple knot to tie & it is very strong.
Tried the Palomar last year but I lost a good one due to it comming untied. I use the Improved Cinch never had a problem with it and its easy to tie like the palomar. Not saying anything bad about the palomar I think I just tied it wrong or didnt use spit or water when I tightend it.
I use the improved clinch know as well, it is all I use, no matter what I am fishing for or bait.
i favor snelling the hooks onto the line but if i dont feel like takin my time, ill tie the polamer
