Swordfish ..I am a great believer in Fireline..I have 14 rods in my rod rack and only two are setting in there with mono on them all the others have Fireline of one color or another..Most of my ice rods are filled with fireline from 2 to 6 lb crystal...Some swear by it and others swear at it......JIM....CL....

If you fish weeds , learn the canoemans knot. Just as strong as a Polmar knot , but the tag end faces the rear of the lure and won't get hung up.

We learned it from a guide in Ontraio last year and it works very well.

Default Trilene/Improved Clinch Knot

I have searched around trying to find a knot I learned years ago working as a deckhand on so cal party boats when I was a teenager (okay that was nearly 30 years ago). At least this is the way I remembered it and have used it. Maybe I am making a mistake?

It seems I am making a hybrid of a trilene and an improved clinch knot. Basically I tie a trilene knot, but run the tag back through like an improved clinch knot. I use it when I am fishing bigger lures or on terminal tackle for pike and striped bass. I have never had the knot break, but now after searching different knot animations, me thinks I am doing it wrong?? Or I haven't found the knot animation of what I am doing.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Default Uniknot is great

...you just need to make sure you moisten it with fluorocarbons.

Grogs index is great but "Video Fishing Knots" has the most comprehensive list of tutorials for fishing knots. They teach with easy to follow video tutorials. Step by step instructions are great but I would not have learned the Bimini twist without the video instructions from this site.

I tried to make a link to the site but I need a few more posts since I am new...

I'd say in your case "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" heh :P

Surprised they don't have the San Diego Jam knot: http://www.netknots.com/html/san_diego_jam_knot.html
It's a hangman's noose for your lure and I have seen a couple sites say it is as strong or stronger than the Palomar.

I love my nail knot tying tool. It is a tie fast. It is compact, durable, inexpensive, and very effective. In case you are wondering it makes line to line connections via the leader knot and lure connections with a gryp knot. The blood knot is stronger but the leader one is nice when the surgeons is too bulky and it is dark and cold out.

One cool site to look at is Knot Wars. They even have an animated video app that can go on your smartphone. The sites listed before are also helpful. I like that all the knots are together in one place.

i use the polamar knot for all my fishing needs...would it be wise to use the rapala knot for lures and the polamar for hooks?

Default San Diego Jam Knot.

http://youtu.be/YO2OVSospbo
San Diego Jam Knot. I use this all the time for all sorts of stuff. Highly recommended.


http://www.fieldandstream.com/photos...-fishing-knots

One thing you can’t buy is a good knot. You have to tie it on your own. And while no single knot satisfies every angling situation, mastering a set of the best, one in each of four major categories (terminal knots, line-to-line splices, light-to-heavy line splices, and terminal loop knots), will reduce break-offs and have you fishing more and retying line less. These four knots are the strongest in each category (see "additional info" below for details on how we tested them).

The Strongest Terminal Knot (for tying on a lure or fly)

The Winner: Six-turn San Diego jam: 94%

Also tested:
Palomar knot: 91%
Five-turn double clinch (or Trilene knot): 87%
Five-turn improved clinch: 86%

The Skinny: Because the San Diego jam uses wraps around both the tag end and standing line, the knot has a better cushion and is stronger than clinch knots, which wrap only one strand. The improved clinch owes its popularity to its old age: It was one of the first knots that worked well with monofilament line, a WWII-era invention. Knots have since advanced -- time to learn the San Diego. (Tied to a size 3 Berkley Cross-Lok snap in tests.)

Directions:
1. Thread the line through the hook eye and double it back 10 inches.
2. Wrap the tag end over itself and the standing line six times, moving toward the hook.
3. Pass the tag end through the first open loop at the hook eye.
4. Thread the tag end through the open loop at the top of the knot.
5. Lubricate and tighten by pulling the tag end and standing line, making sure the coils stay in a spiral and don’t overlap.

Funny, when I was getting back into fishing this year and had trouble remembering all the fishing knot I used to tie, that's the site I found too.
Good stuff on there
