    I watched a show last night called Great North American outdoors. They had a segment about which knots held the most weight. They had this cool looking setup with a cam, and they applied tension on a whole variety of knots. The Knot that held the most was the Palomar knot. Amazing What you see at 3 am isn't it?

    the palomar knot certainly is one of the strongest knots, but when used on monofilament lines, all knots will weaken the pound rating of the line. The less knots you have on your rig, the less short-comings you will have when fishing.
