The polymor knot is by far the best knot, its the most versatile and IMO: by far the strongest. I don't see why this knot can not be applied universally with todays more common bass fishing equipment.


One other know thats good to know for small tackle and panfish tackle is the Improved Clinch Knot. Strong and easy to do with light tackle... Even with number 28 trout hooks.

polymer knot is what i use for all my lures for bass. ive never had a problem....

smaller hooks for like bream or crappie or whatnot ill use the improve clinch. just cause the eyelet on the hook is smaller.....
