Default knots?

Just curious if you all use more than one type of knot? I was just thinking I only use the one I was taught when I was young...never thought anything else about it. Same knot whether I go for big cats, bluegill, or with a lure

I use the improved clinch knot because it is a good knot and I can tie it quickly. There are several knots that are better as far as breaking strength butI use old standby almost always. I fish more days per year than most recreational anglers and that knot stands up for me. I do re-tie often just to eliminate problems.

You and I both. Good knots. Palomar especially for braided lines and worn hooks.

Amen to that indeed. As far as the knot...I have to use something simple and strong for when I forget my reading glasses. That would have to be the Parlomar knot.








The PALOMAR KNOT - For Joining Line To A Fish Hook

[align=center][/align]
The Palomar Knot is easy to tie correctly, and consistently the strongest knot known to hold terminal tackle.

1. Double about 4" of line and pass the loop through the eye of fishing hook.




[align=center] [/align]
2. Let the fishing hook hang loose, and tie an overhand knot in the doubled line.

Avoid twisting the lines and do NOT tighten the knot.




[align=center][/align]
3. Pull the loop end of the line far enough to pass it over the hook, swivel or lure.

Make sure the loop passes completely over the attachment.

4. Pull both the tag end and the standing line until the knot is tightened. Clip off the tag end of the fishing line.
