Default Knot tips

Everyone has their go to favorite knots for fishing. Some knots have more than one technique that can be used to tie the same knot. What tips or tricks if any do you use to tie your go to knots?


Choose the right fishing knot and tie it correctly.
Lubricate knots with water or saliva before drawing tight.
Draw knots as tight as possible.
Trim tag ends close to the knot.
Fish often!
Take a kid fishing!

Pretty hard to explain these types of things in writing. Its always easier to do in person.

I am far from a knot tying professional but I think the most important thing is to tie what knots you are comfortable no need to attempt a fancy knot if there is a chance you may miss a step it is worthless

being a novice I have tried blood , improved blood and uni and all have failed sometimes with that curled up end meaning i didn't do it right.
so now I tie an uni with double loop on top when done and no more trouble.

Loop knot

Expand to full screen (click on the broken box, lower right of the video, after you start the video).

Thank you Chris for stepping up and offering PFF members the opportunity to learn knots, rigging, wind-on leaders, tying double lines and things like that from the professional staff at Sam's. I encourage everyone that is able to get to Orange Beach Al to drop in at Sam's to take advantage of their generosity and to pick up what ever it is that you keep forgetting when you go to the tackle store. I always forget something just about every time I go.

For those living farther away and not able to take advantage of their generosity, we will just have to see what we can do in writing, using pics or even a video like Jim T did. I'm sure that if we get stuck on something one of the more knowledgeable PFF members will step up and help out.

There are many of terminal knots and everyone has their go to knot. My favorite for jigging is the AG Chain Knot. Here is a video on how to tie it.

Here is a short clip of the AG Chain knot in a knot war on a charter trip break by JM anglers.

The FG knot is my go to knot if I have to tie a leader to the mainline. This video shows the easiest way to tie this knot using the "EZ Knotter" made by Gear-Lab.


The FG knot can be tied many ways and end up with the same knot, here is another method used to tie the same knot with out using a knot tool.


Here is another alternative to this knot.
