What Fluorocarbon Knots do you use??

S.D. Ice Angular


I bought some Spiderwire “Ultracast” 100% Fluorocarbon in a 12 Lbs test and clear.

I bought it to put on the end of my lead core line. When I tie it to the lead core line I use two over hand knots.

I first put (2) overhand knots on the lead core line about 12” up and leave them loose. I cut about 4” of “Core” off the end leaving the braided sleeve. I then mark the fluorocarbon with a black marker and insert it into the cloth sleeve then slide down the knots and tighten up about an inch apart.

Here is the PROBLEM:

I can break the fluorocarbon away with no effort at all. So then I just took a piece of fluorocarbon and put (1) over hand knot in it and again it takes very little effort to break it right at the knot.

I did tie a rapala knot just to see if that worked and it seemed to but I don’t really trust it. So now I have a $19.00 spool of fluorocarbon I don’t know how to use. I ended up just putting mono back on the lead core leader (for now anyway).

Any advice would be appreciated…
