Triple Palomar Knot

The Triple Palomar Knot is recommended for tying the latest hi-tech, so-called super lines to metal rings and hooks. It is strong, highly slip-resistant and can be tied in fairly heavy lines.

To Tie a Triple Palomar Knot:

Pass the end of a long bight or loop through the eye of the hook to create a loop.Triple Palomar Knot 1
