The best knot for eyed hooks
Here’s how to form the knotless knot – not really a knot at all!
With a loop tied to form a hair (if required), thread the line through the back of the eye of your chosen hook and pull it through so the end of the line lies close to the hook shank. Wind down the shank of the hook. Most anglers make between 10 and 12 turns – to some extent the exact number depends on the size of the hook and the line strength. Thread the line back through the back of the eye. Moisten the knot and carefully pull all the line through the eye until a knot has formed. While doing this, keep everything tight so the knot doesn’t start to unravel.
