Braided line to flouro/mono leader

I am going to re-spool to #30 braid and run a #20 flouro or mono leader. Does the line diameters matter?

Not if you use a Blood knot.

I started using the improved clinch knot on the braid and mono knot for both sides and have never had it slip. The little tiny tag has never been a problem.

I use 30# braid and 20 pound trylene XL in salt and 15#/10# combo in fresh water. I cut the trylene in two arm length between my hands (12' maybe) and roll and tape with scotch tape and sharpie the poundage on it. Keep it all in a sandwich bag in my PFD.

Thanks! Iíll have to start using that instead of a Uni-Uni knot. The tag ends wont be in the way.

Use a nail knot and one of these tying tools:



The one in that video is from Orvis and is a bit pricey, you can find other brands on Amazon for half the price that work just as well.

I highly recommend these little knot references to keep in your tackle box/bag.

Is this for a shock leader or regular leader? for braid to mono leader I have used the uni-to-uni without issues. For a shock leader I like a spider hitch to a no name knot.

Been using uni to uni to join my leaders and braid for years and have never had an issue.

Shouldn't. I use the double uni knot.
