If you want to learn how to tie a strong knot with braided fishing line, practice tying the double Palomar knot. This is one of the best knots to use when connecting braided line to a hook or swivel, but it can also be used with monofilament or fluorocarbon line.
If you already know how to tie a Palomar knot, tying a double Palomar knot will be easy. The only difference between the Palomar knot and the double Palomar is that instead of making just one overhand knot with the doubled line, you will make two. This extra step provides 15% of additional strength over the original Palomar.
Follow these simple double Palomar knot instructions to tie this knot quickly and easily.
These are the only four steps you need to learn when tying a double Palomar knot. If you compare the instructions for "Palomar knot braid" to "double Palomar knot," you will see that there isn't much difference between the two and that both are good knots for braided line because they will not slip.
