Braiding on Fluorocarbon Knots: Steps to Tie Uni to Uni

Wondering which braid to use for the fluorocarbon knot when attaching your leader to your leash? While there are a few different fishing knots you can use, let’s look at one of the best knots to tie a lightweight braid to the fluorocarbon leader – the Uni-to-Uni knot (also known as the double Uni knot).

If you’re learning how to fish for saltwater species like redfish or snake on land, this fluorocarbon mesh is simple and strong. Using these tips, you can tie the braided cord to the fluorocarbon knot from college to college.

If you are more experienced in tying various fishing knots, you may find another braided fluorocarbon knot line you prefer, but the varsity-to-varsity is a good line-to-line connection for beginners.

  1. Overlap the braid and fluorocarbon lines to be joined. Make sure there is about 6 inches of overlapping line on each side so you can make multiple wraps.
  2. Take the marking end of the line from the left and flip it over to make at least four wraps around both lines (if this is the side of your braided cord, double the number of wraps from four to eight for extra strength) , and then loop the tag end through the loop that was formed.
  3. Repeat this process with the marker end on the right, reducing the number of wraps from eight to four if this is the fluorocarbon side of the college-to-college.
  4. You have just tied two university knots. From this point, pull the standing lines in opposite directions so that the two knots slide against each other (moisten both knots before tightening to avoid damaging the line from friction).
  5. Cut both marker ends of the line close to the knot and you have successfully tied a Uni-to-Uni or Double Uni!

If you are more experienced in tying various fishing knots, you may find another braided fluorocarbon knot line you prefer, but the varsity-to-varsity is a good line-to-line connection for beginners.
