I have 6 lb nano main line and when tied to a mono leader it always fails (I'm using a blood knot). What knot do you use? I've seen fishful thinker use this setup and wonder what knot he uses, can you guys help me. Thanks

I use a double clinch knot. Just cross the lines over one another, tie the clinch on both sides, slide em both down until they're touching, clip excess.

Not sure if this has a specific name, but it's what I use.

double clinch is a blood knot.

I like an improved albright for this application. but it too is a bit tough to tie. if it is a short leader, a tripple surgeons is $$$

Always used the double uni but I always thought that was a blood. I have had issues with it slipping using braid to flouro. Sounds like I need to wrap it more. How many times do you guys wrap the uni knots. Also do any of you just tie straight to the braid, if so what knot do you recommend.

Albright is good for this.

For lines of similar diameter, I've had modest success on the uni-to-uni (what some folks call the double uni). Braid to flouro, for relatively light braids (less than 50 lb) where there is change in line diameter, I use a Red Phillips knot. It can be googled. Easy to tie (only one Uni component to the knot) and holds very well when properly tightened. A bit more compact than a uni-to-uni. For larger braids and/or big leaders, I use a Bob Sands knot.

Best regards,
Dogwood
