Help Knot slipping

I seem to be having the knots that I tie onto my hook slip form time to time. This has costed me several fish as of late. I'm using the know where you wrap the line around itself after you place it thought the eye of the hook. Then, go back throught the original loop. Not sure whats wrong. I pull it tight with my hands ond sometimes it just keeps slipping thru and becomes undone as well.

That's called a clinch knot, try an improved clinch...

You can also try to double up on the original clinch if you aren't already.


Ask me how if needed.... I never had a doubled up clinch slip with 12-14lb mono or floro, but the bigger mono's that I use for liters like 40lb will slip so I use the improved clinch for it.

Use a uni knot. The line is most likely going to break than the uni knot.

When you tighten the knot, wet the line and make sure that you are holding the hook and pulling from the standing line, NOT the tag end. This will ensure that the knot tightens properly. Make sure that the wraps cinch down evenly. The number of turns will depend on the diameter of the line. You will only need 3 or 4 turns on 20 LB while you may need 5 or 6 on 6 LB test. Although it is not my favorite knot, it is a simple one to tie and when tightened correctly it should never slip.

For braid, try a UNI knot.

Youtube has a ton of videos that should help as well.
