Also called a Reverse Clinch or Heiliger
knot, it is very popular with long range fishermen (hence
the name). This high test knot (95% when tied properly)
can be used on many line sizes, with the number of turns
decreasing as the line test increases.
Pass the line through the eye of
the hook, swivel, or lure. Double back over
the main line.
Begin making turns over the main
line. The number of turns varies with line size,
from 8 turns with 10lb line down to 3 turns
with 40 lb.
Complete the appropriate number
of turns, then thread the tag end of the first
loop above the eye.
Holding the coils in place, pass
the tag end through the loop created by the
last coil of the knot.
Hold the tag end and standing line
while pulling up the coils. Make sure the coils
are in a spiral, not overlapping each other.
Slide against the eye. Clip the tag end.
