    Okay, how many fishing knots do you really need to know? I've pretty much gotten by with an improved clinch knot. What's everyone's favorite knot?

    I use an improved clinch knot with freshwater fishing but learned to tie the palomar for saltwater.

      As a flyfisher, I get by on three knots, improved clinch, double surgeons and the perfection loop. I know there's better knots, but these work for me.

        Gotta go along with Flyfishermanj on that one. Those three knots will get you through just about anything. The perfection loop will save you a lot of money on leaders by being able to loop in your tippits. Good old Lefty know his stuff huh?

              I guess it depends, I really think you can get buy with about 3, whether those 3 are the best or not is up for debate, but with modern gear a lot of the knowledge that used to be specialized, isn't necessary anymore.

              Improved Clinch, Trilene, and I forget the name of the one for joining different sized lines or wires but that can be useful
