Double Uni Knot Tying Instructions

    • Overlap the ends of lines to be joined. Take the end of the line from the left and double back and make 3 to 4 wraps around both lines and through the loop that was formed. Pull tag end to tighten.

    • Repeat with the end of the line on the left making the same number of wraps unless tying with braided line in which you should double the number of wraps.

    • You have now tied two Uni knots. Pull the standing lines in opposite direction to slide the two knots together.


Palomar Knot

How to tie the Palomar Knot. The single best fishing knot? Many fishermen believe that the Palomar Knot holds that title. Palomar Knot comes close to being a 100% knot when tied properly. Be sure that when the hook or lure is passed through the loop that all parts of the knot cinch up together. Many depictions of this knot elsewhere make it look like the loop part of the knot goes up against the bottom of the eye of the hook or lure. The knot can fail if tied in that manner. This is also the best knot to use with braided fishing line. The Palomar Knot is a good choice when fishing the popular Ned Rig with ElaZtech bait such as a Z-Man TRD bait. Due to the durablility of the bait you might not think to retie your knot as often and the Palomar will probably hold up to more fish catching abuse than other knots.
