Improved clinch knot

A simple yet very strong knot for tying hooks and lures to fishing line that is most often used by anglers. Being quick and easy to tie are the main reasons behind its popularity. When tied perfectly the clinch retains 85 to 90 percent of line strength. It can be used with lines testing from 2 to 60 pounds.
