How do I Tie Mono Fishing Line to a Hook?

How do I Tie Mono Fishing Line to a Hook?
When reel fishing, a line is not complete without a hook. To tie a fishing hook to your fishing line, you'll need to utilize a fishing knot. Once your hook is securely attached, drop your line to the bottom or fish the surface of the water. Depending on the type of catch you want to obtain, bait the hook with a live or artificial lure and wait for a strike. The sharpness of the hook will ensure that the hook sets securely inside the fish's mouth during retrieval.


Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Line clippers or knife
Step 1
Loosen the drag by engaging the drag mechanism, which is a knob located on either the top or bottom of your fishing reel. Pull 6 inches of line away from the reel. Double the line to create a 3-inch loop.
Step 2
Pass the loop through the eyelet of the fishing hook, which is located on the rim of the hook, opposite the hook point. Form an overhand knot using the loop. To do this, you must pull the end of the loop over the lines to form a circle.
Step 3
Pull the hook through the loop, which will extend from the overhand knot you just crafted. Pull the line tight to secure the hook on your monofilament fishing line.
Step 4
Clip excess line using line clippers or a knife.

Tips & Warnings

Be careful not to injure yourself while handling the hook.
