First, take six inches of line and double it over itself to create a double line.

Pass the double line through the eye of the hook.

Then, create a simple overhand knot but don’t cinch it down all the way.

Now, take the hook itself and pass it through the loop that forms from the overhand knot.

Cinch the knot tight.

Trim the tag end and there you have the Palomar Knot.

Quick, easy, and reliable.

If you break off or a fish rubs your leader forcing you to cut the line and retie, this is an excellent knot for that.

It is quick so if you are in the middle of a bite, you can quickly get a new hook and lure out to the fish.

Does this Knot work with braided Line or just on mono/fluorocarbon? And or is it recommended with braided line?

One of the most popular knots, the Palomar Knot is strong and relatively easy to tie. The Palomar knot is best for use with braided fishing line.

With braid it will slip unless you complete 2 turns through the loop before wrapping the doubled over end around the hook. Thie video on the palomar vs uni knots from Luke is not bad.

I’ve been using this knot for over 30 years on both mono and braid (when it became popular) with no changes. On mono it’s good up to 30lb. After that it’s a bit hard to tighten. One thing that helps is to wet the line before pulling it tight. I’ve never had a knot failure or slippage I can remember.
