Hello everyone,

Quick question to you knowledgeable ones .... Does anyone know, what is the best knot to use, to join say ... 20 pound mono line to 50 pound braid line? Basically i want to use mono at the base of the spool and then attach the braided line, which is what i am given the impression, should be done, so that the braid doesn't cut into itself.

If anyone has different opinions, kindly do share?

cheers

Thank you kind gentlemen... may this knot hold up to the biggest of them... :-)

i tried the knot and i think i got it right, but Ken i will take you up on that and iron out any deficiencies, provided of course we get down to it first thing, before we get going high on other things... ;-)

cheers

HI Vikram,

what I have noticed is that things are done differently in different regions.

Here in Dubai we use braid for backing & mono / Fluorocarbon @ 10mtr to 25mtrs in front depending on the kind of fishing you are doing.

I use a FG knot, which is a simple knot with a tedious tying (Time consuming) routine. (This is not easy to tie on a boat). This is also one of the smoothest knots while spinning, but has a protocol to follow whilst tying, else it will slip.

The reason for using Mono/ fluoro ahead of the braid, is that it has more abraision resistance than Braid & also has some amount of stretch.

Braid will get cut very easily over a rough surface & has '0' stretch.
If you use braid agead of the mono, make sure that you replace the first 10 - 15mtrs of braid everytime you fish off the rocks. I'm sure you wouldnt want to lose that 1 giant fish that you might hook up.....then again you could always write about 'The one that got away'. :lol:

you need a weak knot if you are using mono backing - if a fish runs with your line down the rapid and you cant stop it, then you need to point your rod downriver and let the line run till it hits the joint knot and the weak knot will snap saving your tackle.

if you are going for big game (as it seems from the 50lb line you are putting on), then better be prepared. anything can happen to the best of us ....

For cat fishing you need a braid leader to cut through the weed and unfortunately mono tends to get stuck on the 1st knot the weeds get hold on to.
