How to Tie the Strongest Fishing Knot
Line-to-line splice: joining lines of similar size - J knot 1. Overlap ends of the main line & leader by 12 inches. 2. Create a large, open overhand knot. Pull the leader all the way through. 3. Keep the loop of the overhand knot open as you pass the two lines around the bottom & up through the loop. Pass the lines over the top of the loop & back through downward. 4. Take one more turn under the bottom part of the loop & up through the loop again. 5. Moisten, then pull on all four ends.
