  1. What was the knot you said to learn? I was driving and can’t find by skimming the episode. Also what swivel do you recommends and size.

    • Palmer Knot here is one video on it

      I use this knot 90% of the time. The only time I do use it is for specialty knots like say a stand off loop or a snell loop or in splicing lines together where mostly I’d use a blood knot.

      When it comes to terminal tackel, ie a hook a snap swivel, a lure, etc. I would say I use it 99% of the time, the only time I don’t is when 2X line diameter won’t go in the hole.

      Example I recently ordered some small wire circle hooks, really cool ones here ( )

      I was tying up some snells with them with 12lb fluorocarbon and the line just won’t fit in the eye doubled so I went to a conventional clinch knot. Other than that it is the easiest knot to tie I know of that is also super strong. I have tested it and the line itself always goes before the knot.
