HOW2TV How to tie the Palomar knot (video)


Knot Tying with Jacob Wheeler. Hey guys Jacob Wheeler here and today I’m going to talk to you about a few of my favorite knots that I use on tour. First off is the original Palomar knot. Now there’s a misconception with using the Palomar knot with fluorocarbon because of the breakage. Now there’s certain ways of tying this knot where you don’t have to worry about that, that’s what I’m going to show you today.

Now first you are going to start off by doubling over your line, so it’s through the eye of the hook. Make sure to give yourself some room where it’s doubled over. Standard rotate your hook. Come down through like a conventional knot. Now the key is keeping your finger in that knot so it’s not all the way synched down. So I give myself a little room, I’ll go around the whole hook, like so. Now this is the key. So using my finger I open up the knot again. Now below the small loop, you need to flip that loop up above the knot. See it flip up. It’s up above that knot where it’s not going to be cutting into your line. Now you’re going to wet it, synch it down, and you’re good to go. Because that loops above your knot it’s not going to cut into it and it’s going to be used, great to use with fluorocarbon, monofilament or any other line you can think of.
