Its fairly simple to tie though some kind of tool helps. Ensure you cover the braided loops open ends. Using your right hand pass the butt of the leader through the loop and bring 8-10 inches of material through the loop.

Leaders and tippet are other items that you will need in order to get going and hook up.

Dont improve the clinch knot with that final move back through the loop either its unnecessary and adds bulk. You can use a nail or small tube a Nail Knot tool of course and I have always used hemostats. Pull the leader line until the knot is touching the top of the lure. Then wrap the short end of the leader line around the long end of the line 4 times.
