The clinch knot is extremely easy to tie and it is also very dependable. I learned how to tie it from my father. We use it for everything, fesh and salt water, and it has always held up. The picture shown is my first fish and biggest fish cought on this knot. It is a stingray weighing about a pound that I cought when I was 5 and a 16 lb. redfish I cought a few years ago. I'm glad to share this and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Step 1:

The first thing you're going to need to do is thread the line through the eye of the hook or lure. Double it back to about 5 or 6 inches.
