Tying a Palomar Knot

November 10, 2016


Fishing Hook
Fishing Line


  1. Pull your fishing line through the hook eye.

  2. Take the tag end of the fishing line and run it back through the eye.

  3. Now, one side of the line will be looped. Make a single, overhand knot using the looped and open ends of the fishing line.

  4. Before tightening the overhand knot the whole way, pull the looped section of fishing line over the hook and back up to the top.

  5. Pull the remaining end of the line to tighten the knot.
