Avid anglers know that a properly tied fishing knot can be the difference between that trophy fish and staring at your fishing line with nothing at the end.

Learn how to properly tie your fishing knots from Lake-Link and its instructional videos listed in the extensive library below.

Videos are listed in three categories: Basic Fishing Knots, Loops, and Joining Lines.

"Basic Fishing Knots" provide step-by-step instructions on how to tie fishing line to a hook, fly, or lure. If you need a simple, go-to knot, try the Clinch Knot. The Clinch Knot works well on most lures and it is one of the most popular knots used to attach lures, hooks, and swivels to fishing line.

"Loops" show you how to create loops at the end or middle of fishing line. Need a quick and easy way to tie a small knot to the end of your line? Learn how to tie the Perfection Loop.

"Joining Lines" lists videos on how to tie knots that will join two or more lines together. If you are looking for a great multi-purpose fishing knot, check out the Surgeon's Knot. It can be used to join similar sized lines, or lines of different size.

Once you have chosen the right fishing knot for the job, watch the video to learn how to tie it, and then be sure to practice tying the knot until you can tie it correctly.
