The Improved Clinch is a time-tested and a very popular choice for tying terminal tackle to monofilament line. It is quick and easy to tie and reliable. It can be difficult to tie in lines testing greater than 25 pounds breaking strength. It is not recommended for braided line.

The Improved Clinch knot can be found on the PRO-KNOT Fishing Knot Tying Instruction Cards, available at Bass Pro Shops website or at your local Bass Pro Shops store.
