Best Fishing Knots

Best Fishing Knots

In Fishing one of the most important things needed to learn are the best fishing knots to use. There are a variety of different fishing knots that can be used. On Finao Sportfishing we use 5 different fishing knots that get the job done. Each knot is unique to certain fishing lines and techniques used. The Mono-Filament fishing line that we recommend is Ande Fishing Line. The Braided Fishing line we use is Power Pro and Cortland.

1. Fisherman’s Knot

The Fisherman’s Knot (Clinch knot) is one of the easiest yet strongest knots there is. This knot is one of the first knots every fisherman needs to learn to get started. It can be used with Mono-filament and Braided fishing line. In the video below Captain Austin Hayne will go over step by step on how to tie the Fisherman’s Knot.

2. Palomar Knot

The Palomar Knot is the strongest fishing knot in many situations. This knot only has 3 steps making it extremely powerful and very basic. Since there are not many twist and kinks in this knot it makes it extremely tough to break. It can be used on Braided line and Mono-filament. View the video below to see Captain Austin Hayne demonstrate how to tie the Palomar Knot step by step.

3. Uni Knot

The Uni Knot is the most common knot that we use on Finao Sportfishing. We use this knot because it is very quick and easy to tie. This knot is similar to the Fisherman’s Knot in strength and difficulty. This knot can be used with Braided line and Mono-Filament. Watch the video below to see Captain Austin Hayne tie the Uni knot step by step.

4. Hay Wire Twist

The Hay Wire Twist is considered a knot but is more a series of twist. This “knot” is for using steel leader. This is the only knot that we use when using steel fishing leader. it can be a little difficult to tie but is a must know when using steel leader. Captain Austin Hayne will demonstrate how to tie the Hay Wire Twist in the video below.

5. The Snell

The Snell is the strongest knot for tying your hooks to fishing line. When this knot is done correctly it is almost unbreakable! We only use this knot with Mono-Filament line. With some practice this knot becomes very easy. It is the best knot to learn for connecting hooks to fishing line. Captain Austin Hayne will demonstrate how to tie the Snell.
