A Reliable Knot For Mono and Fluoro

The Trilene Knot is a favorite of mine for attaching lures to fluorcarbon or standard monofilament lines and leaders. It is fast and easy to tie; and very strong when done properly.

1. Pass the line through the eye twice and leave a loose loop.


2. Wrap the tag end around the main line 5 or 6 times. Use six wraps for lighter lines and five for heavier lines.


3. Pass the tag end through both loops formed in the previous steps.


4. Moisten and draw the knot tight. Trim as needed.
