    Descriptions of all the knots you will ever need. My two most commonly used knots are the snell and palomar knots.

    I have used the improved clinch but I prefer the polamar, this knot has never come undone for me. The uni is a good knot, but when I do use it, I do a double loop through the eyelid.

    I use the cinch knot, the figure 8, and the bimini twist
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Thanks for the link I have been wanting to find a good knot page. I spooled up soom power pro and they recomend a uni knot. After plowing my drive all day I think I will settle in and practice a few knots now:]

    Heck I use more knots then I know what to do with.

    Improved uni and palomar is normal...heck jsut a basic square knot with a hitch on my halibut rigs. Loop knot for ice fishing and some fly fishing or jigging.

    Havent used the bimini twist however I'm eager to get a long rod on some tarpon. Havent quite figured out the merits of the bimini though it's not all that hard to tie once you've done it a time or two.

    And then all the fly tying knots.....

    Great site btw

    I'd reccomend doing away with the power pro unless you are halibut fishing. Its by far the worst "innovation" i have ever seen in fishing, and cost me a 60 pound king on the kenai..

    Mono:
    San Diego Jam for terminal connections. Uni-to-uni for splices.

    Braid:
    Bimini to double the end then tie a Palomar with the looped end. Tie it once to a terminal snap/swivel for the entire season for a very durable 100% connection. A disposable mono leader finishes every rig I tie.
