Step 4:

Next, holding the loose end tightly against your hook or lure, pull the standing line and the hook in opposite directions. The twists should tighten into small coils. Make sure the coils don't overlap as you pull, the must go one over another or the knot will not be as strong.
improved clinch knot is for sure the way to go. Also, wetting the line in the water or w spit ensures a better way w any knot... unless there is one that I'm not thinking about that would benefit from being dry.
personally, the most reliable knot to tie. so trustable and never fails!!! thanks
Thanks of the tip... Just in time for our fishing trip...
Go one step better with the &quot;improved clinch.&quot; <br><br>http://www.animatedknots.com/improvedclinch/index.php?LogoImage=LogoGrog.jpg&amp;Website=www.animatedknots.com<br><br>The first time you lose a 40 pound salmon due to knot failure, you'll appreciate the difference.<br><br>
FYI i spit on it just before i pull it tight. It makes it easier to tighten and keeps it from slipping for some reason. It must be my magic saliva.
Great work! I like it. You can tie knots on my line anytime. 100. JF
This is my go to fishing knot. It was the first one I learned and I've been using it for years. When I lose a fish, it's rarely from knot failure.
Thanks for sharing this, it seems genial: simple, easy, fast and safe!
