The Improved Clinch Knot
This is the first of several different knots to be used with a baitcasting reel.
This is one of the easier knots to tie, and is one of the main reasons it’s so popular for connecting monofilament to terminal tackle. This knot is best on lines of 20 pounds and under. To tie the proper knot, you will pass the line through the eye of the hook, swivel and lure. Then bring it back through and make five turns arond the standing line. Holding the coils, thread the end of the loop above the eye and through the larger loop. While pulling the coils, make sure they are in a spiral, and don’t overlap each other and slide it against the eye of the knot, lastly you will clip the tag end. – Although requiring a few steps, after a few trys, this is one of the simplest knots to make.
