How to Tie a Braid to a Fluorocarbon

Save

Braid fishing line is made from small diameter individual strands of line. The individual strands are braided to form a strong line that is smaller in diameter when compared to traditional monofilament fishing line with a comparable pound test strength. Fluorocarbon line is almost invisible under water. Fluorocarbon leaders are commonly used with braid lines as a transition to a lure or bait. A specialized knot is used to connect braid line to fluorocarbon line.
