At the other end knot there is the loop you made, put the hook through it and simply pull down on and all until it slides in tight. And here is your Palomar knot. Very simple knot. And take your tag take the log through the eye of the hook and come back and put it through the eye again. You need about I would say six inch circle. Once you have the circle make the over end knot.
