    quick hollow core question

    Back in the day at the finish annual trout invitational, I was taught by Stan Van Mecklenburg, put the line up the core a few inches and tie a figure 8 knot. Light tackle works good. Works good on heavy line if you put a knot in the mono before you push it up the hollowcore.
