Clinch Knot

     This is probably the most popular fishing knot used today.  When tied properly it is very strong and doesn't slip. It is perfect for lures.

1. Pass the line through the eye of the hook, or swivel.

2. Double back. make five turns around the line.

3. Pass the end of the line through the first loop, above the eye, and then through the large loop. Draw the knot into shape.

4. Slide the coils down tight against the eye.
