How to Tie a Trilene Knot

Posted by nick under Knots

The Trilene knot was developed by Berkley for tying their Trilene monofilament line. It is a very strong knot when tied on light light, from 4 to 12lb test.

I find it works especially well on fluorocarbon line and leaders, preventing the knot from coming lose in the fight.

This knot is used to attach hooks, lures, flies, snaps, swivels and sinkers on fishing line.
