So you have a shiny new magnet and you really do not want to lose it in the water. Well in that case we need to learn the most awesome knot for magnet fishing!
The best knot to use for magnet fishing.
Without a shadow of doubt the best knot for tying a magnet to our rope is called a Palomar knot. If you also go fishing there is a good chance that you will have used this type of knot before. It is great for tying on swivels and hooks.
The knot is very strong and is basically as strong as the length of rope itself. Because of this you do not need to worry about it breaking free and coming lose.
The below diagram shows you step by step how to tie the knot. I know it is using a fishing swivel but it can be easily applied to a magnet as well.
If you are struggling to follow along to the diagram do not worry. This awesome YouTube video below shows you step by step how to tie it.
If you do not want to have to tie a knot for your magnet, check our magnet fishing kit page. On there you can buy our recommended rope that comes pre tied on a very strong carabiner clip. This makes it much quicker and easier to switch magnets.
If you would like to read a little more about the Palomar knot then have a look at this Website. It specialises in knot tying and many different ones that you can use. I would however stick to the Palomar knot when you are magnet fishing though.
