how to tie a wire leader to braided line

Crafting a seamless link between a wire leader and braided fishing line is far from challenging. However, should the ideal size leader and knot not be selected, the result will be disastrous – the line potentially slipping and granting the fish its escape. It is therefore essential to pick appropriately and tie correctly in order to guarantee success.

To begin, the size of the leader is determined based on the fish and lure in play. A reliable strategy is to use a leader that’s approximately one-third of the main line’s diameter. For instance, if the main line is 20-pound strength, then a 6-pound leader should suffice.

Once you have selected the proper leader length, it is time to start cutting. Ensure that it is lengthy enough to provide a secure connection from your rod to your reel, with an additional 18 inches for convenience. This additional space allows you to easily make any necessary adjustments or tie any knots without affecting the leader’s effectiveness.

It’s time to get this fishing line into shape. The primary knot utilized to join the leader line and main line is called the uni knot. The tying process begins by sliding the leader through the eye of the hook or lure. After that, create an overhand-style loop with the leader and thread the end of the leader through the loop before tugging it tightly. Once everything’s secure, snip off any extra leader.

Form the double uni knot to join the leader to the braided line and enjoy a strong bond. Though not as simple to tie as the regular uni knot, it is more secure. Start by folding the leader in half and pass through the eye of the hook or lure. Crisscross the leader by creating an overhand loop and threading its end through it. Cinch the loop and get rid of any excess length from the leader.

When pursuing larger catches or tougher waters, the triple uni knot is the knot of choice for joining the leader line to the fluorocarbon fishing line. To create this bond, begin by passing the leader through the hook eye or lure three times, then curl up a loop on the loose end of the leader and thread it back through. Gently tightening this arrangement brings the knot together; once secured, cut off any excess leader line.

All the hard work of tying the knots is finished, which means now it’s time to put them to the test. For this, you’ll want to affix the main rope securely to a solid anchor such as a tree or post, then direct the cord into your desired area. If you see that the knot is securely in place, then you’re all set and ready to start taking on some fishy foes. But if not, don’t worry! You can always give it another go until your knots are rock-solid and ready.
