Uses: The Trilene Knot is a strong and reliable knot to join monofilament line to hooks, swivels and lures. It resists slippage and failures and is an excellent and stronger alternative to the Clinch Knot.
Tying it: When trimming the tag end of the Trilene knot leave about an eighth of an inch for security.
Advantages: The double wrap of line through the eye takes some of the strain and may be responsible for claims that the Trilene knot retains a high proportion of ideal line strength. This is more likely when the thickness of the eye is greater than the line diameter.
