@ Harold, I never had a problem with s double uni knot yet...I would respectfully suggest you practise tying them till you get it right

But at what price??? Lost lures and lost fish!

I think it's braid to fluoro that's the worst.

never had a knot break yet flouro to braid and that my friend is on over 40 rods and reels

Read GJ's reply and as I mentioned, you need to practise and maybe loosen that drag a wee bit

I find that the knot to a fluoro leader often slips despite my best efforts----double Uni, blood knot---spit in line, carefully cinch up etc!! I Have an aversion to using swivels to join the leader (I am not specifically referiing to salmon. A bit of 'topic drift' maybe)

There is another option that eliminates the need for the leader knot and that is to spool up with a main line flourocarbon. Seaguar AbrazX works well for downrigging. It resists abrasion from being pulled "sideways". I've used it for years without fail. Just another option.

you can stop the problem of trebles pinching the line by, replacing then with single or double hooks, never a problem again.

I only use the Uni, double Uni or Palomar knots for 90% of my fishing, never seem to need any others and never had problems in 36 years of fishing with them.

You must tie them correctly and you MUST WET the line before and as you tighten it.

Sorry, I don't understand the problem and this hot discussion about knots between the main line and the leader.... Honestly, I never had any problem with that. I just use O ring, swivel or even snap.....
Anything wrong with that? - other than unable to spool it together with the main line on the reel....? But if 3-4 ft of fluro leader is enough after the main line it shouldn't be a problem.....
(Please, note, I'm not arguing or suggesting, I'm asking)
