Default Re: Knot Instruction.

I use a modified albright for that purpose. Tie it carefully and trim the tag ends close and it goes through the guides slick as snot.

Here's a YouTube vid on it. I do it just like this, except that I do not double the braid (using 30lb test original Fireline), and I'm a LOT more careful to make sure that the wraps going back down perfectly criscross the first set of wraps and mesh together cleanly as the knot is pulled tight. When tied carefully this is a great super-strong knot. Tie it poorly and it will slip.

Thanks for the help. Not sure what I was thinking, but I've never used braid as running line before. I've tried tying a shock leader to a smaller diameter mono running line a few years back...that's when the knots get big.
