tying on a jig

Recommended Posts

Palomar for me too. Thinking about changing to something new so I can have a different response to knot questions than everyone else. :)

Clinch knot, not improved clinch knot.

When you get hung up, you can pull it loose, and not cut your hand or destroy your reel.

Improved clinch or Trilene knot is fine.

The Palomar knot is overrated when using fluorocarbon...

Go fishing, have fun.

(and using a Palomar knot, might be tough getting two strands of 20lb line through a small jig eye)

I use either a San Diego Jam or a Polamar knot. Both seem to work just as well in my experience. It just depends on my mood which one I go with.

Use 55 or 65 lb braid, and there are no hang ups..you pull out whatever your lure/jig is hung on.. ;D

What is a good knot for tying a small jig on 20lb fluorocarbon?

Pitzen (16-20) with any fluoro.

UNI! Since I've went to it I litterally can't remember breaking off at the knot or one coming undone.
