You’re reeling in a fighter, he’s only a few metres away and bang…he slips off your line? Why? A few reasons spring to mind, and one that never fails is the fact you tied the line to your hook with a simple double knot. In short, that simply won’t do.
Each connection within your fishing setup needs to be superstrong, reliable and have the ability to take the strain of a fishing fish. The Clinch Knot is a simple yet effective way of tieing fishing line to a hook or fly and is as far more reliable than a standard double loop.
Follow the simple images below to tie a perfect Clinch Knot – Remember practice is perfect!
