How to Tie Knots in a Berkley Fireline

How to Tie Knots in a Berkley Fireline
Berkley Fireline is a high-performance, microfiber line designed for maximum strength. These super-lines feature a smaller diameter than the same strength monofilament line. They cast farther and offer more sensitivity than monofilament. Because of the microfiber construction and small diameter, it is important to use a strong and easy-to-tie knot such as a uni knot.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Berkley Fireline Knots

Things You’ll Need:
  • Berkley Fireline
  • Fishing lure or hook
  • Nail clippers
Step 1
Thread 8 to 10 inches of Fireline through the lure or hook eyelet. Run the tag end back towards the eyelet forming a loop. Hold the loop by pinching it with your thumb and forefinger.
Step 2
Grab the tag end and make six wraps around the loop you have formed. Ensure the wraps start at and work away from the lure's eyelet.
Step 3
Grasp the tag end in one hand and the standing line in the other hand. Moisten the knot with saliva so that the knot will tighten smoothly.
Step 4
Pull both ends evenly and start tightening the knot. Switch between the tag end and the lure while tightening to help the knot tighten smoothly. Tighten until the wraps are snug against the eyelet and each other.
Step 5
Trim the tag end with the nail clippers.

Tips & Warnings

 
Use caution when working around fishing hooks to prevent injury.
