On this page: San Diego Jam Knot

Also called a Reverse Clinch or Heiliger knot, it is very popular with long range fishermen (hence the name). This high test knot (95% when tied properly) can be used on many line sizes, with the number of turns decreasing as the line test increases.

San Diego Jam Knot Instructions:

Step 1: Pass the line through the eye of the hook, swivel, or lure. Double back over the main line.

Step 2: Begin making turns over the main line. The number of turns varies with line size, from 8 turns with 10lb line down to 3 turns with 40 lb.

Step 3: Complete the appropriate number of turns, then thread the tag end of the first loop above the eye.

Step 4: Holding the coils in place, pass the tag end through the loop created by the last coil of the knot.

Step 5: Hold the tag end and standing line while pulling up the coils. Make sure the coils are in a spiral, not overlapping each other. Slide against the eye. Clip the tag end.
