The turle knot is a little known snare knot used to attach hooks to a leader. It is one of the most simple knots to tie, but is unfortunately quite a weak knot and is not usually recommended unless targeting very small fish. However, the strength of the knot can be significantly improved by tying the double turle knot, which I will also explain below.
1. Pass the line through the eye of the hook and make a simple loop.
2. Carry the end of the line on to make a Simple Overhand Knot upon the loop and pass the loop over the hook
3. Tighten into shape
Double Turle Knot
- Pass the line through and make two simple loops. Then make a Simple Overhand Knot around both loops.
- Pass these loops over the hook.
- Tighten the knot.
