The palomar knot - the best and strongest all around knot for terminal tackle, lures, and jigs

Updated: Sep 29, 2023

The palomar knot is one of the simplest and strongest terminal tackle knots for fishing. I have tried more complicated knots but I don't feel there was any added value except taking more time tying knots than fishing. I have also seen a number of independent knot tests with the palomar coming in first place most of the time. I fish with almost exclusively with braided line in fresh water and have not had the knot fail once in the past six months of fishing 3-5 days a week. The video below gives a quick demonstration on how to tie the palomar knot. I've also included a diagram. I would be happy to hear anyone's feedback on this.
