Chasten Whitfield|Pro Staffer
This knot is great for tying two lines together (joining main line and leader) when you don't want to use a swivel. It works well and most find it easier to tie than the Blood Knot. This knot can be used with braided line or monofilament; just be sure to make several extra wraps in the braided line.
