The Palomar Knot comes close to being a 100% knot if tied right, but you gotta be sure that everything cinches together properly. This is also the best knot to use with braided fishing line. How to: 1. Double 6-8 inches of line and put it through the hook's eye. 2. Tie a loos overhand knot, keeping the hook at the bottom. 3. Hold the knot between your thumb and first finger, and loop the line over the hook. Slide this loop above the eye. 4. Pull both ends to tight, adding water before doing so. Clip tag end closely.
@dougjohnson Me too--what would we do without it? Definitely wouldn't be catching as many fish.
A must have knot for all circumstances; my life changed when I first learned this!
@happyrock its definitely one of the most useful knots and not too bad to handle
