How to Tie a Fishing Knot

By Marshall Nicholson | Jun 25, 2021 | Uncategorized

Boating and fishing go together like hook and line. There are a plethora of fishing knots out there that one can learn. But, why break the bond with a complicated knot? For those looking for a quick and efficient knot technique, read on!

In this video, Digital Content Specialist with The Boat House, Marshall Nicholson, explains his preferred method of tying a fishing line to a hook.

*Disclaimer: This video was filmed with fishing braid so that it is easier for the viewer to see. We recommend using fishing line.*

  1. Begin by putting the line through the eyeball of the hook. Feed it through the eyeball about 3 inches.
  2. Clasp the line with your fingers and create an “oval” shape. The hook will dangle from the line. It will resemble a necklace.
  3. While holding the line, twist the hook around 5 or 6 times, bringing the two pieces of line together.
  4. Feed the end of the line through the “line eyeball” that you have now created. This will be located by the hook eyeball.
  5. One more time, feed the hook through the loop that you have made with your line.
  6. Complete the knot tying process by pulling the line and bringing it together with the hook.
