you always tie the mono or flouro around the braid.Flouro is very good as the braid grips it nice.My two cents worth....spiders hitch or bimini to yacatan and three turn lock knot from power pro.Never failed me.Wink

persoanlly mate I like the braid binding to the mono as its the thinner of the 2, I used to do the same as Kerren but got the odd slippage, both appear to work well and I have no complaints

Bimimi to a yacatan, IMO its the best and most stream lined connection, like Blue As, I prefer the braid binding to the floro.   Nothing wrong with a spiders hitch, some people find it easier, Takes me the same time to tie a Bimimi.
After tying the yacatan i like to do a half hitch so the tag end does not get snagged in the guides.
