    The Trilene® Knot

    The Trilene knot is a strong, reliable connection that resists slippage and premature failures. This knot can be used in joining line to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures. The knot's unique double wrap design and ease of tying consistently yields a strong, dependable connection.

    1. Run end of line through eye of hook or lure and double back through the eye a second time.
    2. Loop around standing part of line 5 or 6 times. Thread tag end back between the eye and the coil as shown.
    3. Wet line and tighten knot with a steady, even motion without hesitation. Trim tag end leaving about 1/4".

    The Uni to Uni Knot

    1. Loop tag end of the shock leader back to the left and make 5-6 wraps round both lines.
    2. Wet lines, then pull slowly on the tag end until the loop disappears.
    3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with other tag end. Tighten both knots.
    4. Wet lines, then pull on standing part of both lines to draw the knots together.
