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.
