Tie an Improved Clinch Knot


Improved clinch knots are my favorite knot - it is the one I use and it had never failed me!
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: five minutes

Here's How:

  1. Put line through hook or swivel eye
  2. Wrap tag end of line around main line 5 to7 times
  3. Put tag end of line through the loop in the line between the wraps and the hook eye
  4. Bring tag end of line back through loop made by the last action
  5. Pull the knot tight
  6. Cut off the tag end of the line


  1. Wet the knot with saliva to make it pull down tight easier
  2. Hold tag end of line in teeth while pulling tight in step 5
