My favourite way of joining a Fluro or Mono leader to Braid. (Soft Bait fishing)

PR knot,you need to practice it but once you know it,it easy...
 
Only difference is with s/bait fishing you can shorten the knot considerably

Heavy braid for casting and a quick fix if my PR gets damaged http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueatfyziKRE&feature=related

For softbaiting, short double bimini or spiders hitch to albright.

I use a lefties loop for leader to softbait.

A five turn surgeon's knot for braid to leader. it's the easiest knot, just 5 grannies in a row. I've never had it come loose. I think I read somewhere that it's highly rated also. I use pretty thin braid, fireline 8lb matched to 20 lb leader, which massively out sizes it, and have never had an issue with the difference, aka doubling the braid.

Not if you have fuji sic guides, straight metal rod guides are not good with braid thoughWink

Best and easiest knot for braid to clip or hook is the Paloma knot - easy to tie with your eyes closed and very reliable.

FG method for smaller lines, or in a moving boat

How reliable is the albright knot when joining braid to leader? Has anyone had any problems with it when softbaiting?

The Albright is about an 80% strength knot on mono...braid is more fiddly but...

one thing you have to remember is not all braids are made the same...
some are better with different knots hence the reason we have so many people using different knots and saying this one is better....

you will even note a difference when using nylon trace and a fluro.....

so please write down which brand of braid your tying knots with when posting...
Thanks for everything you did for us Eric. may you rest in peace, You were one of the real legends of NZ recreational fishing
