A good fishing knot will be extra strong and keep the hook from having unnecessary movement in the water. The modified clinch knot does just that, and you can learn how to tie one in less than two minutes.
In this video from the ITS Tactical YouTube channel, Bryan Black uses an oversized fish hook and some rope to demonstrate a knot you can use on hooks, Spinner bait, swivels and other types of lures. Start by stringing your fishing line through the eye of the fish hook, and then make about five wraps around the line. Slide down your wraps to tighten things up and pass the end of the line through the small loop between the top of the fish hook eye — not through it — and the wraps you just bunched up. Now pull the line through it’s own loop that was just made and pull it tight. That’s it! Throw some bait on and you’re ready to fish.
