    The Improved Clinch Knot

    The Improved Clinch Knot


    To tie the Improved Clinch Knot, pass line through the hook eye once or twice and, with the tag end, make 5 or more turns around the standing line. Insert the loose end of the line between eye and first loop formed. Bring the end through the large second loop formed.
    Wet the line and tighten the knot slowly while holding the loose end of the line end between thumb and index finger so the knot is partly closed before it's secured against the eye. Clip the loose end of the line.

    Has anyone had problems with this knot failing? Quite a few times will using this knot when I have hooked up with a big fish the knot has failed. I don't think I am tying it wrong so is this just a crappy knot that everyone has problems with?

    I haven't had problems with the regular clinch knot, never tried the "improved" one.
