Learned a New Knot on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QKzQiYmjRs
Supposed to be the Strongest of Knot's using the Clinch and Palomar variation's.
Think I am going to be using this'un from now-on.

I use braided line so the palomar knot is for our hooks and weights when kittie fishing. But when we use mono we use a normal clench for the weight and a palomar knor for hooks. Kentucky rigged or dropper rigged idk what its called lol

Snell is hard to beat on fish hooks when using mono. I don't think I have ever snelled with braid. Might try it out to see if there is a problem.

I snell my circle hooks onto a flouro or mono leader.

If using Octopus hooks, I use a split ring and tie to it.

For other than braided line I use a variant of the San Diego knot, seen it called many different names. Easy to tie and is a stout knot, been using it for about 30yrs now.

For braid, the tried and true Palomar.

That's about all the knots and differences I care to deal with while fishing.

When I was about 8 yrs old fishing for bluegill at Lake Arlington an old man saw me tying a hook onto my line with a granny knot. He showed me a knot that was easy to tie and cinched up well. I used that knot for many many years before it dawned on me that it was a hangman's noose!! Just use a minimum of three wraps when tying, and four is plenty. I still use it. Wet the knot before you snug it and it will snap (like a neck?) tight.

The hangman has never had any complaints about his knot!

I was three knots on my Carolina rig

Main line is 65-80lb braid to swivel I use a polomar knot

Other end of the swivel is my leader 50lb mono I use an improved cinch knot

And I snell a 7/0 circle sea hook.

Granted you have to start with the snell and work your way up and I use a 4oz no-roll sinker.

Since I started using the snell knot on my circle and j hooks my hook ratio has been near 100%
