Many anglers make this simple (but crucial) mistake when it comes to their fishing knots…

When you’re using artificial lures, it’s important to work it the correct way to convince a fish to strike.

And one of the things you can do to help yourself work it the correct way is to use the right knot with it.

There are two types of fishing knots when you’re tying on lures:

1. Snug knots
2. Loop knots

Snug knots are great for lures that you do a constant retrieve with, while loop knots are great for lures that you need to put action on.

In this video, I’m going to go through some of the most popular lures and talk about how to work them and the best knot to tie with them.

Have any questions about which type of knot to tie with each type of lure? Any other knots that you like to use?

Let me know down in the comments.
