One of the best fisherman's knots you could employ on monofilament nylon fishing line is the Trilene knot. It's a favorite knot in every fisher's bag of tricks, and it should be in your arsenal, too! Watch and learn as Wade Bourne of MyOutdoorTV shows you how to tie a Trilene Knot.
The Trilene Knot is a strong and reliable knot to join monofilament line to hooks, swivels and lures. It resists slippage and failures.
The double wrap of line through the eye takes some of the strain and may be responsible for claims that this knot retains a high proportion of ideal line strength. This is more likely when the thickness of the eye is greater than the line diameter.
