Line to Hook Knot: Pitzen Knot
This knot is also known as the "fisherman's knot" or "16-20 knot" depending on who you ask, but either way it is a very effective knot for tying your line to your hook. It retains up to 95% of the line's strength, and is easier to tie in lighter lines than heavier lines. If you want to use this technique on braided line, use the San Diego Jam knot as an alternative that will hold the slippery braided line better. How to: #1. Thread the line through the eye of the hook and loop the tag back under the standing part. #2. Hook line around tip of index finger and wind the tag back down around the two parallel lines. Make four wraps working back down toward the eye. #3. Pass the tag end back through the small loop being held by your finger. #4. Tighten the knot down onto the standing line. Lubricate the knot and the line and slide the knot down to the hook eye. Do this with your finger tips, not by pulling the standing line. Once the knot is in position at the hook, then pull tight.
