    There is no doubt that the palomar knot is a very strong knot and very simple to tie.

    However, I now have a doub whether I tie it correctly.

    After passing the loop over the hook I gradually draw it all together.

    I make sure the loop is <u>off the eye of the hook</u> and closes around the over hand knot part of the line.

    However, in some instructions I have seen the knot is shown closed up with the loop <u>around the eye or still on the shank.</u>

    Which is correct?

    Same here, If you left it as per the second description there is essentially slack line in the knot which will tighten suddenly with a fish on, causing, I would expect, undue stress on the lineand knot.

    The first way is definitely the correct way.

    Your right Matt, several sites I have just checked do leave the loop on the shank - but the Youtube link and the one below do it the way - I think - is correct.

    Makes me wonder how many people are tying it wrong and have problems.
