Cool My confidence knot

The only time I don't use this knot is when I use the palomar for drop-shotting

Use that knot for everything except for tying on some lures thats when I use the loop knot. Use it offshore and inshore (saltwater) never slipped.

My uncle taught me that knot about 10 or 11 years ago. Since learning that knot I have put very much faith in it, it has never failed me, not once.

I'm kinda partial to the palomar knot. But ofcourse thats just me, the rookie angler.

Palomars are very strong and simple to tie. But, as the article explains, the uni-knot has alot of applications. It seemed hard to me when I first saw it in an Eagle Claw insert years ago, but now I can tie it in my sleep.

Please remember that you only need to wrap it three times when tying it to the reel. That is so it isn;t as bulky and doesn't catch on the remaining line as you cast.
