How to Tie the Uni-Knot

The Uni-Knot

Strong, reliable and easy to tie, the Uni-Knot is an excellent knot for securing line to terminal tackle. It's also the foundation of the entire Uni-Knot system. Note that the Uni-Knot can be left as a loop or tightened down so it's snug to the hook eye (see Steps 4 and 5).

Step 1

Run at least 6 inches of line through the eye of the hook, swivel or lure, and fold to make two (2) parallel lines. Bring the tag end of the line back in a circle toward the hook or lure.

Step 2

Make six (6) turns with the tag end around the double line and through the circle.

Step 3

Hold the double line at the point where it passes through the eye and pull the tag end to snug up the turns.

To create a loop connection: Adjust the loop size by sliding the knot up or down the standing line. Then pull the tag end with pliers to maximize tightness.
