The Fish N Fool is an easy, quick knot that secures slippery braided lines. It can be used interchangeably with the San Diego Jam Knot and the Palomar Knot, depending on which one you find the easiest the remember and the quickest to tie.
The Fish and Fool is a Uni Knot that takes two turns of the line through the hook eye, creating a doubled line that is stronger than the Uni and better able to hold a braided line. Learn how to tie the Fish N Fool Knot using the following the 6 steps.
Step 1: Pass the end of the line through the eye of the hook two times, leaving a tag end of about 5-6 inches.
Step 2: Double back with the tag end of the line to form a loop that hangs below the standing line.
Step 3: Hold the loop open with your finger. Wrap the tag end over and around the double line and back through the loop 5 or 6 times.
Step 4: Release the loop with your finger and moisten the lines.
Step 5: Pull the tag end to tighten the coil around the standing line.
Step 6: Slide the knot down to the eye of the hook.
