Default Palomar, Snell Knot, Dropper loop and Bristol

I tie jigs on with a Palomar.

Hooks, I snell.

I use the Dropper Loop for lots of purposes including mono to mono.
Tie to lines together with an overhand knot then tie a Dropper loop with the Overhand Knot in the middle of the dropper. When you tighten the dropper knot, clip off the tag ends that form the loop.


The Bristol rules for braid to Mono, fluoro or wire.

OH HECK!!! Shuck-a-mighty!!! I thought ya'll meant rope knots since this is the "Boating Section" and not any of the "Fishin' Sections"

Line to leader I like the albright, but am starting to convert to the red phillips.

To lures I like the uni

Perfection loop gets used a lot, especially for fly gear.

Few others get mixed in but these 3 can get me by

I typically use a Palomar Knot for fast and simple but can be difficult with heavy fluorcarbon leader. In that case i use the Uni Knot. If I'm feeling brave I'll snell my hooks...but that takes practice...at least for me.
Great link!! Thanks

Hook to mono - snell

Swivel/jig ring to mono - clinch

Double line - Bimini or when in a hurry - surgeons

Braid to swivel - palomar

Double braid to mono - yucatan (or no-name)

mono to mono - unis

Solid wire to hook/swivel - haywire twist with barrel wrap finish

Stranded wire to hook/swivel - figure 8 finished with a haywire/barrel wrap

Dropper knots for chicken rigs

Crimped Al sleeves on 150 mono or larger on deep drop rigs or trolling lures

thats all I have to say about that
