Look at the YouTube video of John Collins tying the bob sands knot, I've used that same knot on big tuna for a while, I had a deckie on a long range boat a couple months ago, have me show him how I tie it, it has a conical shaped front portion that goes through the guides extremely smoothly. I normally use izor solid braid to either Seagar, or Aftco Seiko floracarbon. Very stealthy and the baits swim great. If I'm fishing heavier, Jerry Brown makes a 130# solid spectra, I've bought it at Meltons. I use it because fly lined baits swim better with solid in my opinion. Can't land a fish you can't hook!Looking for the best connection for light braid to light line... 8# braid to 4# mono or fluoro...Is their a better choice? Is the Albright or RP knot better?
Same here, I use uni to uni instead.It’s OK if you can make it work. I’ve had terrible luck with the FG knot and light lines (under 20 pounds). Maybe it’s my old eyes and fingers, but I just can’t get get the braid to bite into the fluoro. When I go to cinch it, it just pulls through. RP knot here for the light stuff, but I hate how it feels on my thumb when I cast.
