vogon 295 Posted May 23, 2022 Report Share Posted May 23, 2022 G'day all, I normally fish with fairly lightweight line & leader, 6 to 10lb but have recently bought an 11' beach/surf rod with a 5500 reel which has 30lb braid, Daiwa bulk & 40 lb leader, Daiwa J thread. My problem is that the knots I had previously been using, Albright or Alberto keep unravelling when casting,. I tried a double uni knot for the same result, looked horrible though, I may have mis-tied it. I don't really want to learn how to tie a FG not so I am after suggestions on what I may be doing wrong or other knots I could possibly try. I will say that the knots seem very tight when first tied. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. TIA Quote Link to post Share on other sites
