How to tie a Palomar Knot

The Palomar Knot is both quick an easy to tie. It is also very strong and therefor a very popular fishing knot. The only downside is that the palomar knot uses a little more line than other similar fishing knots. So if used in a tapered leader it will shorten the line more quickly. But when the palomar knot is used with small lures, hooks and swivels it is superior to many other fishing knots for being quick, easy and very strong. Also the palomar is so simple that it can be tied in the dark.

Does the palomar work with braid lines too?

My brother ties a normal clinch knot with two overhand knots as extra precaution from slippage. Don't these weaken the overall line strength???

Very strong, reliable and simple knot. I switched from improved clinch to palomar.
If not tied correctly (it's very easy to make a tangle mess), clinch knot tends to break very easily, if line is nylon. On the other side, palomar is very easy to tie and it's almost impossible to make a mistake - so every palomar you tie has the same strength.

what i like to do after every knot is tie an over hand knot as a safety to ensure that it does not come untied.
