I'm a big braid fan but haven't found any knots that work to join nylon traces with any luck. I lost a good kingy that took a snapper bait when a double Uni-knot parted . Since then I've given up trying and have reverted to swivels. I think most people know the limitations of these so I'm keen to see if anybody's got any bright ideas.
I have braid with mono top-shot on my game reels. My method is to use a 3 metre sleeve of hollow braid into which I insert 1.5 metres of the braid and mono. The stuff I use is 80 lb braid and the Jerry Brown website says that the minimum mono size is 20 lb for this braid. The join is very smooth and 100%. I phoned Jerry and ordered over the phone. ring early ( during cheap rates).
Thanks guys.Sorry for taking so long to reply.Blimen site would`nt let me in.Kept saying my Username and password were wrong.Quite a rigmaroll to get back in here.
Yes to you Barapoi,id like to see a photo.I`m using the All bright knot now,and ended up whip finishing it with my Fly tying gear to try and lock it on.Will see how it holds on my next adventure out.Hopefully this weekend.
Didn't have time to perfect the knots suggested for the Furuno so in the end I tied a 7/0 with a lumo bead straight on to the braid. Desperation prevailed and a 2.1kg Kahawai came up. Don't know if this is just a fluke but I did note that fly lines are usually visible and it doesn't stop them.
I tie a bimimi twist in the braid then use the double to tie a 20 turn albright knot with the mono. I finish off the albright knot with a couple of half hitches then a 5 turn half hitch where I carefully wind back the 5 turns to end up with a clean termination where the tag end is locked by the 5 turn knot.
I finish off by applying Pliobond all over the finished knot to ensure a smooth knot.
