How to Tie a Braided Line to Monofilament

Today's braided lines are great for fishers. Since they are made from synthetic materials, they are resistant to rot and offer outstanding strength for their size. With all these advantages, though, braid is still more visible under water than monofilament. For this reason, many fishers attach a monofilament leader. Use the uni-knot when tying a monofilament leader. The uni-knot is simple to tie and offers outstanding strength.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You'll Need:

* Monofilament Rod and reel spooled with braid Side-cutting pliers or nail clippers
* Monofilament
* Rod and reel spooled with braid
* Side-cutting pliers or nail clippers

Step 1
Overlap the ends of the braid and the monofilament. Make sure that the overlapped tag ends have about 12 inches of line. Start with either end that you choose and tie a uni-knot. Grasp the line and form a loop as shown here.
Step 2
Grasp the tag end and make six turns through the loop that was formed in Step 1. Keep a firm hold on the overlapped lines and the loop to prevent a tangle. Slowly pull the tag end as shown here.
Step 3
Keep pulling until the knot is totally tightened. Ensure that the coils are tight and snug against the other coils. The coils must be tight to consistently get the uni-knot's maximum strength.
Step 4
Tie another uni-knot that will butt up against the previously tied knot. Repeat the above steps on the other end of the overlapped lines. Make sure that this knot is reversed from the previous knot.
Step 5
When both knots are finished, pull on both of the main lines until the knots are tight against each other. Trim both tag ends flush with the knots. Trimmed tightly, this knot should pass smoothly through the rod eyelets.
