    Default Tieing a jig to line

    Just wondering what kind of knot you all use when tieing a jig to your line?

    I've started using the Orvis or Becker knot:

    It's easy to tie and very strong. Several knot "gurus" swear by it.

    I cheated in a crappie tournament and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.

    I either use the palomar or if I want 2 jigs on 1 line I'll use the surgeon's loop. Both are very strong.

    I'm old and stuck in my ways. I've been fishing a Palomar knot for about 50 years and it is still a great strong knot and easy to tie.


    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. John 15:7 Jesus says..." ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

    Default knot

    Palomar knot. If your eyes or fingers don't work like they used to (me) run it through single & back through single. Makes tying a lot easier.

    Palomar, Sergon's Loop or the Uni-knot. I use all 3 at different times.

    Agreed - best all around knot. Best knot strength and break weight. I've been using it for over 20 yrs. I used the fishermans/berkley/rapala knot before but the palomar is better and easier to tie.

    Just remember to spit lube your knot before tightening. Cinching a dry knot can create enough heat to weaken your line.
