How to Tie Fishing Knots Videos
Essential knots every angler should know.
Rapala Pro Jacob Wheeler shows you how to tie the essential fishing knots that every angler should know. These short, clear videos give you step by step instructions for tying the most common knots for just about every fishing situation, including the Palomar, Rapala Loop, Snell and Yucatan.
The Palomar Knot
There’s a popular misconception about using the Palomar knot with fluorocarbon because of breakage. Jacob shows you how to tie this knot so that breakage isn’t a concern.
The Rapala Loop Knot
When you’re fishing a bait, especially topwater, without a split ring, the Rapala Loop Knot is the ideal choice. This knot will allow baits to swing free and give topwater lures more action.
The Snell knot
If you’ll be flipping heavy cover like bushes or matted vegetation, the Snell Knot is a must. Wheeler shows you how to tie it correctly, which can lead to an increase in your hook-up ratio.
The Yucatan is the knot of choice for connecting two different lines together, such as braided to fluorocarbon. Wheeler will show you how to tie this fishing knot to ensure that both lines are securely joined.
The knot is the connection between you and your fish. Learning how to tie fishing knots correctly can be the difference between the catch of a lifetime and the one that got away. Have more fishing knot and fishing line questions? Visit our FAQs or Knot Tying Guide for more helpful information.
