fluoro leader

Recommended Posts

i want to use a fluoro leader tied to braid. How long should the leader be for fishing most texas rigged plastics? Also I have been having trouble with the knot slipping when tying the two lines together. Any suggestions there.

Leader length 2-3 feet is what I normally use.  For the knot I use the double uni-knot and have never had any issues with the knot slipping or failing.

Later, :)

I always add a little glue to the knot also to help hold.

in fresh, i dont use a leader.... just straight suffix braid....

but in salt, i use a mono leader....

about 6ft in length....

the knot i use is the improved albright.....

ive never had it fail...

if your having problems, i suggest giving it a try...

(the improved albright is wrapped down as well as up.... just google it)

I use a double uni knot and never have problems. I use about 2 - 3 feet of leader most of the time, longer can make casting a problem, especially with a casting reel. P - Line CFX fluorocarbon leader is by far the best.

I'm looking at the smallest "bump" I can get without

sacrificing strength. Several knots work just fine,

but it seems to me the Blood Knot and Albright

create the least disruption in the line flow.
