On this page: Two-Turn Clinch Knot

The Two-Turn Clinch has been around since the turn of the century. It's stronger than the Improved Clinch and almost as easy to tie.

Two-Turn Clinch Knot Instructions:

Step 1: Pass the line through the eye of the hook, swivel, or lure two times to form a small double loop.

Step 2: Finish the loop between your thumb and forefinger, and make five turns around the standing line. Insert the tag end through the double loop.

Step 3: 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.

Step 4: Clip the tag end.
