On this page: Palomar Knot


The Palomar Knot is a general-purpose connection used in joining fishing line to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures. The double wrap of line through the eyelet provides a protective cushion for added knot strength.

Palomar Knot Instructions:

Step 1: Double the line and form a loop three to four inches long. Pass the end of the loop through the hook's eye.

Step 2: Holding standing line between thumb and finger, grasp loop with free hand and form a simple overhand knot.

Step 3: Pass hook through loop and draw line while guiding loop over top of eyelet.

Step 4: Pull tag end of line to tighten knot snugly and trim tag end to about 1/8 inch.
