Mono Backing on Reels

9 posts in this topic

I have read a lot about putting a mono backing on your reel and then a shorter amount of flourocarbon/ppro with that. What is the best way to attach the two each other? I have no idea how to or what the best knot should be for this...

Thanks,

A uni-knot is pretty strong and easy to learn to tie. a drawing will show better but; spiral the to lines together 8-10 times maybe less not sure whats stronger. then split the 2 lines in the middle, and bring boths tags through the hole it made when you split lines. you'll figure something out. test 'er out

aka back-to-back uni knot. Works great. If you Google it, you should be able to find it. I think Power Pro even comes with a flyer that shows it.

I wouldn't think so but maybe.

Agree with the above posts. I use a surgeons knot because it is easier for me to tie. Never have had any problems when I tie it correctly and that is relativly easy.

If you have trouble with tieing the Uni, give the Surgeons a try.

Again, do a google. There are several very good sites which will have pix to walk you through many kinds of knots.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
