    braided line

    My Bro -in-law gave me ( he packed up and followed some absolute troll of a woman back to the states ) a Berkley drop shot trout rod and a Tica ( 7 ball bearings !!!!) reel. The reel is loaded with some sort of braided line ..... Q , do you ( should you ? ) need to tie on a ( mono or fluro ) leader to this braid or do you just tie it ( the braid ) straight to the snap swivel ( as it was when given to me ). Dilema ... he is no fool when it comes to fishing but this braid aint exactly invisible , but then I cant see a braid to leader knot rattiling thru the guides adding to my casting prowess either. looks like good piece of kit ..... cept the rod is one piece and 6" longer than any of my other trout rods....... leader or(k)not

    yep you do mate for trout maybe 10lb flrocarbon (guessing here I'm not a trout fisho
    the easiest way to attach it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xk_VUb-dOQo
    the strongest way but a lot harder to tie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyoayxB6D7M

    I use the back to back uni as its easy to tie and strength is fine but some to say the Albright is much stronger
    for trout I'm sure the back to back uni will be all you ever need

    Do you know what your bro in law had attached to the snap swivel? Only thing I can think is maybe used it as a jigging outfit with a dropper type set up underneath it.
    Anyway, I use a double uni knot to tie the braid to a fluro leader, and then the lure to that. Don't use a swivel/snap. If the lure spins a lot the swivel is attached to the lure.

    The fg (f#$king good) knot it the only way to go. By far the thinnest braid to mono/fluro knot i've found. It's like a Chinese finger trap in a way and slides through the eyelits alot better than an albright. I use it on all my barra set ups and its tip top.

    I got this on one of my reels spinning for trout. Need to tye on a short leader of mono to lure stops braid getting abrasions, doesn't have a memory like mono(and me &#128540 so doesn't twist and casts awesome. Is a pain in the wind tho as real light line.

    Shit that looks like the hard way to tie one.

    This is the method I use. It is very simple.

    its a hard one that's for sure but like any knot with practice easy honestly though its just not needed innless your tying 80lb + braid to 100lb plus leader for kingfish marlin etcetcetc
    for snapper fishing I've never had a failure from a back to back uni and I can tie one quick as I use the uni knot for everything weather it be a back to back or just a basic uni for tying on a hook or something

    Slim beauty knot hands down it does not catch on the guides when casting due to it being tapered and it can stand up to a good amount of abuse from the fish, I use this knot all the time when tying my shock leaders to the mainline of my surf casting reels (which is 10 and 15kg braid)
