1) Make a short double
line using a Bimini twist or a Spider
hitch. Hold the double line and the leader parallel. If
joining a mono leader to superbraid make the Bimini with 30
- 40 turns instead of the usual 20 turns.
2) Wrap the double line 4 times around the leader (15 times for
3) Bend the end of the leader back on itself and pass it through
the end of the double line. Lubricate with saliva and carefully
pull tight. The two lines will wrap around each other. Trim
the tag end of the leader close.
4) The finished knot is compact and very strong. It casts well
and will pass through rod guides easily. If tied with the recommended
number of turns it is the best knot we have found for joining
mono leaders to superbraid mainlines.
