    What knot do you use to connect your leader to your braid?

    Triple surgeon's for inshore because it's fast and easy. I generally use back-to-back uni-knots offshore.

    Doarado, Have you tried an Albright? I like the triple surgeons for when I need to attach a leader when I'm on the boat It's quick and it goes through the guides okay.

    Hello everyone,

    I typically use the double uni’s but as mentioned does take a little longer to tie than the triple surgeon. I am using braid to fluorocarbon. However as of late I have been tying a Slim beauty (I think it originated with fly fisherman). I find it takes just as long to tie, just as strong, and is smaller in profile for traveling trough the guides.

    A little tip that works for me is that I will tie on a long leader initially and as I need to I just snip some off and re-tie lures and hooks without having to change the whole leader every time.

    I do occasionally retie the whole leader if I feel it has been weaken in any fashion or is too short for my liking.

    This way I am not tying all day, I rather fish.

    James

    I have quit trying to use an albright with Power Pro. No matter how much I try to set it tight, it slips. Triple Surgeons, Uni-Knot and Slim Beauty work well. On large leader, the Uni-Knot is quite bulky for the rod guides.

    Captain Terry, The slim beauty is a great knot. Thank you for the suggestion. I use a bimini and tie the no name knot to that but when the leader gets too short the slim beauty has proven to be a great replacement without having to retie the bimini.

    I've been using a Triple Surgeon's Knot for years, but I have a friend ... a lifetime saltwater angler ... who swears by the Albright.

    I've gotta try the Slim Beauty. Many thanks for the tip.
