Triple Palomar Knot

 

The Triple Palomar Knot is recommended for tying the latest hi-tech, so-called super lines to metal rings and hooks. It is strong, highly slip-resistant and can be tied in fairly heavy lines.

To Tie a Triple Palomar Knot:

Pass the end of a long bight or loop through the eye of the hook to create a loop.

Repeat the process twice more.

Tighten the trio of loops just formed around the eye and then tie a half-knot with the end of the bight and the standing part of the line.

Pass the hook through the bight (or the bight over the hook).

Then tighten the knot so that the bight rides over the knot and ends up around the standing part of the line. Tighten and trim the tag end.
