First, feed the end of the line through the eye of your hook or jighead.

Then with the tag end, wrap 4-5 turns around the main line.

Once you complete the wraps, put the tag end through the initial loop that you created above the eye of the hook or jighead.

Then, take the tag end and pull it back through the second loop that forms.

Pull the knot tight and cinch it all the way down.

Cut the tag end and you’ve got a friction knot snugly tied to your hook or jighead.

Before you master reeling in fish, you’ve got to master your knots!

A super quick knot like the Improved Clinch is excellent for quick re-ties or if you’re changing a lure out real fast.

Avoid using this knot with braid as it is prone to slipping out.

Thanks Richard! My uncle taught me the improved clinch knot when I was a kid. I practiced tying it so much that even after years of not using it I can bust it out without hardly thinking. Always great to have a SS video to double check ones work though. 👊🏻
