STOP LOSING FISH! Improved Clinch Knot Tutorial

STOP LOSING FISH! Improved Clinch Knot Tutorial


what’s up guys today I’m going to teach
you one of the most reliable knots that I know of and that’s the improved clinch knot it’s a really simple knot I’m going to show you how to do it really quickly
stay tuned so we just wrote a new PDF called “what knots to tie and when” and one of our favorite knots is in here the improved clinch knot I’m going to show
you how to tie it really quickly using actually– look, it’s the same lure that I
took a picture of and I’m going to use this I’m going to use this braided
yellow line so you can see it easier but certain knots work better with certain
rigs, certain lures this knot works for a lot I use this to tie up my regular
hooks I use it to tie my poppers this is my go-to knot so I want to show you as
clearly as possible because I’ve seen a lot of knot-tying
videos where it’s pretty unclear how they’re doing it so I wanted to try and
make it as clear as possible ready get the tag end, right? put it through okay? now hold both of these lines the tag end line and the main
line, okay? and now we’re gonna turn this six times, one, two, three, four, five, six. zoom in on that so you see that little loop right in there? right before all those twists? I know you see it now take this tag end this is– this is the difficult part because you want to keep these these loop– you want to keep these
twists as tight as possible so get this tag end while keeping tension on both
the lure and your– and the main line now put that through put that through that little hole… okay… ah! all right pull and then once you put
that through there you have formed a new loop right here you see this new loop
right here put it through that and then you’re gonna want to tighten the whole
thing but you don’t want to pull everything at one time kind of slowly
pull it notice how these these wraps how they come together you kind of want to
pull all three at the same time see that you see how it’s folding? there we go that’s an important step that a lot of people have not explained is the
tightening of the knot it should be tightening evenly if it doesn’t tighten
evenly you’ll be left with a lot of loops here and and it just doesn’t look
good and it’s not as strong this is a strong knot now there we go now I’m
gonna cut this tip off so then just cut the tag end off and this is an important step test the strength of your knot don’t just start fishing it because
sometimes you could have tied it wrong and the whole thing slips and you lose a
big fish it’s happened to me before trust me guys you want to test your
knots and there you go a quick easy knot it’s quick and easy to me because I have
tied this probably over a thousand times thousands of times an important thing
that you guys need to know is that this knot does not come overnight it’s
something that you need to continually practice something that you need to
practice even when you’re not fishing something you need to practice when
you’re sitting at home nothing else to do. just practice tying. the faster you can
tie the knots while you’re on on field fishing the better off you’ll be
this is just one knot of many knots that we explain there are a lot of different
kinds of knots that that I like to use but for specific things such as the
line to line tying your your main line to your your your leader line if you’re
using a braid or if you want to tie basically the reason why you would tie a
line to line knot is if you have braided line and you want to
have a thick leader line or if you even if you have thinner monofilament
fluorocarbon line and you want to tie a thicker leader line on it’s a really
nice thing to know how to tie a line to line anyways this is all available at

  1. great tutorial could you do a tutorial on an FG knot? it is one of the strongest braid to leader knots and it is pretty easy to tie

  2. Ref. pdf file that you sell. States pass through line twice. I cannot see that you do this on the video. Am I missing something?

  3. HINT : When using MONO how to know when A good fishing knot is well tied : the main line remains STRAIGHT !!! If it is curly or whatever, NOT straight = weakness. This is caused by friction. Friction creates heat. Heat weakens mono.

  4. Those other videos are just.. knot as good as this, I was actually looking at a video for this earlier today.

    Serious though, the other video said this knot is only good for up to ~20lb mono, is that true? I have 30lb mono

  5. This is the one knot to go for every beginners. It is strong and reliable. A second strong knot is the Palomar knot (a bit tricky thought – but super saiyan level). Last but not least, The Snell.

  6. I hear and see what you're saying and doing, but I really hate this knot and stopped using it years ago. Almost every truly big fish I've ever lost was down to this knot, and it's variations, slipping on me. These days I only use palomar and uni knots.

  7. I've lost a lure on the cast — right after tying the same knot and testing it! I cast, the rod went limp, and I pulled back a curly line end.
    A piece of advice is to leave a bit more tag end than I did lol

  8. Get Erin to do the demonstrations, her little hands won't hide the knot like yours do.
    Also mention wetting the knot if using mono or hydro.

  9. Great work๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—you would get more fish without lose any lure also you explain the knot so easy not like the other you should have more people like you ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

  10. Hey senko great tutoral , i just want to ask one thing : At the start , ฤฐnstead of passing the tag end through just one time , can't we double pass through and then start twisting it? This way the knot's lure side would be stronger just like a double palomar aint ? ( i havent tested this , but i will certainly do )

  11. THe way you do this is probable the most difficult way to tie this knot.ย  Wrap the line around the line keeping a LARGE loop near the eye of the hook.ย  you mistd the MOST important step of tying this knot.ย  If you do not lubricate the Knot before you tie it the knot is weakened by friction.

  12. Hey your videos are Great! Anyway you could do a video on these new jigs called bottom sweeper jigs, like best knots to use and best use for them, etc. that would be great thanks and keep up the good work!

  13. I guess I use a standard Clinch knot and I've never had one break. I also use a surgeons loop knot, to make loops. And those two knots I've used in the 35 some off years I've been fishing.

  14. I tie a not very similar to this but it raps around the eye of a hook twice but other than that looks edsactly the same and its easier

  15. Hey senko skipper I have a quick question for you, so I've noticed when other people do the improved clinch knot they don't spin the hook when wrapping the tag end line over the main line. Instead they make the line go under it, then over it for 5-7 times. Whys that? Is it the same thing?

  16. Hi dearies. Is a double clinch knot better than a single strand? Love yโ€™all. Itโ€™s me Grandma Suzie ยฐ(ใƒƒ)/ยฐ

  17. the proper knot goes twice through the eye to form a loop then tie as you did. im 60 and my father taught me that improved blood 55 years ago. you are a clown.

  18. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ถ๐ŸŒบโœ‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  19. This is also know as a "locked half blood" knot in Australia. The reason it is called a "half blood" is literally half of the "Blood" knot used to join 2x lines together. "Locked" because the tailed is held in place outside the knot unlike the "Blood" where the force of the lines pulling against each other offers the locking action.

  20. Most vlog's on this topic and knot instructions suck, this is very well done and thanks for going beautifully slow and concise, excellent !

  21. I HATE THIS KNOT!! i lost my pb on a popper today using this knot use the palemor knot if you dont wsnt yoyr day ruined

  22. I hate this knot. I used it with fluorocarbon leader and lost a massive lake trout at the boat. The fish turned and my knot slipped

  23. This is so cool, just bought the PDF ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ gotta start practicing now ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽฃ

  24. So this or a uni knot? Seems everyone is claiming the uni is the strongest all purpose knot for fishing yet I have been ding this knot my hole life and find it much easier. Any thoughts guys?

  25. first I have a note… I had asked lots of question in your channel you didn't answer most of them I wish you would your answer could help a lot , and second have a question … what's the cheapest braid line but something quality ??

  26. Omg. At last. Someone on Youtube rolling the lure itself to get the 6 turns.
    To me, the clinch knot is the best and the fastest. I learned that knot at 6 years old and I was set for life. You simply roll the hook/lure/whatever between your thumb and index, pass, pass and done.

  27. lol don't use this knot just use a palomar knot that is much better i lost a giant bass because of this knot and i tied it right i would rather use multiple overhand knots than this

  28. My favorite knots are the improved clinch knot, the Snell knot, the uni knot and the loop knot ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

  29. It never sinches down good for me, everytime there is a little loop and the knot keeps abraiding right above that loop, I wet it and only use 5 twists, help…..

  30. This is one of the easy knots thats also easy to screw up! Double edge sword! I was testing some new line an it was slipping. I thought the line wasnt any good. Then i realized i was doing something wrong. Even tho i had tied this knot hundreds of times.
