Hi Guy's, what shock leader knot's are you guy's using to tie to YGK and other high end pp line,or dose it matter.
TIGHTHow tight do you trim the slim beauty Nick? Assuming very tight? I was using it the other day for the first time and although I'm pretty sure I made a good job of tying it, it caught a fair amount of weed. Don't think I did it quite tight enough - just didn't wanna risk tying it too loosly or wrongly on its first outing. Strong not though!
Thanks for the link NickTIGHT
leave the tags long intially
and pull them tight with pliers
cut the mono/fluoro tag end nearly flush
tie a simple overhand/granny knot in the braid tag and get it as close to the knot as possible then cut above it
the granny/overhand stops the braid fraying
There's a great vid demo on midcurrent: LINK
I tie mine at home the night before to make sure they're good
