This knot is probably the biggest question on my boat from my clients as far as tying knots go. It's a very hard knot to show first hand, specially the way I tie it, so I've been telling them that as soon as I find a good example I'll post it on 2cool, that way everyone can get it. enjoy fellas!

P.s Best way to learn it is with 2 different colors of line, that way you see whats going on. Cut each color 12 " long and tie your butt off.

If you are tying braided line to monofilament I would recomment 7-8 wraps for the braid as it has a smaller diameter and only 4-5 for the mono end.....

I'm tying Braid to fluorocarbon, never had an issue with just 5 wraps. 8 wraps with me cramped the loop and caused the 2 knots to not cinch up correctly, and that will cause it to snap.

I go 5 and 5. I pull the braid side knot almost tight, then do the flouro side knot. When you pull it tight take the flouro tag end into your teeth and hold it tight and then pull the knots together. It helps to keep the knot smaller. And don't forget to wet the knot before pulling it tight.

Uni to Uni is the only line to line knot that I use. I feel it is the best. But if you are using 8lb dia or smaller you need to use more wraps in the the braid 10 is the min. I use. More wraps spreads the preesure out. Braid will cut leader line any leader line under enough pressure.

This is the only line to line knot that I have not had fail, yet. I experimented with about 5 or 6 different knots when I went to PP. This is the strongest knot in my book.

I like this knot a lot. However, I have had trouble with it when the sizes of the lines are dramatically different, (joining 20 to 80 lb). I like finishing it with a drop of super glue.

Man I dont think that would be a good idea due to the chemicals in super glue could eat the line up, specially on fluorocarbon or regular mono. If it works thats great, but I'd be worried about that.

Actually, Spectra,Fluorocarbon,and Cyanoacrylate all share same/similar polymers, and co-ploymer's. There are no adverse chemical reaction's when mixed together.

I have used super glue on knots when using larger line and flouros for YFT and black fin and never had any adverse reactions....

Ok, cool so super glue works, i won't use it.... Is there a certain way the loop is turned, meaning up or down when tying, or does it matter?

I always found having the loop turned down and on your preferred hand side.

Here you go Hollis. To finish off the leader to bait.

Some of the recommended loop knots are horrible to try to tie on the water.

Here is about an easy a loop knot that about anyone can tie. Be sure to wet it and pull to set the size loop you want.

I Just started using the allbright. Its got a smaller profile and its pointed so it flows through guides better IMHO. AndI also use super glue.
