For striped bas fishing we just tie a double surgeon knot, quick and you can tie it in the dark. Never had one fail

What is the best knot for tying mono to braid?
using hollow core braid,like jb...make a loop in the main line...next step...make a loop in a seperate piece of jb hollow core,then serve up the leader into it...connect it together using the loop to loop method...another way,is to loop the braid on the reel and buy a few wind-ons by basil...the "cat's paw" is the strongest method...next is the uni knot method...

doesnt it make a difference when using high poundage mono? I have 130 pound mono for tuna and it makes ugly knots.

the Albright is great for large diameter leaders because the larger diameter line is the single loop, and the wrapping is done with the smaller diameter line.
