Nylon monofilament is an elastic homogeneous thread, that greatly stretches in the water. Braided is a rigid cord consisting of thin flagella, intertwined with each other. It is very strong and has a low tensile strength. The knotted knot should provide the greatest tensile strength. It is also important that it does not overtighten the tackle. Blood knots, Water knots, and Albright knots are great for tying line and cord.
The knots used when joining monofilament cords are not suitable for mounting two braided cords. The wrong method of knotting leads to quick wear of the knot and damage to the thread. It is also necessary to consider the shape of the cross-section of the cord: it can be square, triangular, rounded, or multifaceted. The knots “Grinner”, “Bloody”, “Eight”, and “Carrot” are well suited for this situation.
When fishing with an ordinary float rod, hooks often occur, leading to breaks. To avoid this, many fishermen buy a fishing line. To mount it, it is necessary to connect yarns of unequal diameter. For this purpose, the knitting techniques “Blood knot”, “Grinner”, “Carrot”, and “Academic” are suitable.
Tying lines together using the loop-in-loop method is a very convenient method, but not always the best one. The need for tying may arise in various cases:
A temporary knot may be needed to connect the ends of a broken line;
It is necessary to connect the mainline to the shock leader (a thicker line, which carries the peak loads during casting);
It is necessary to connect the montage to the main line;
Other atypical cases.
The knots that are knotted on the main line have special requirements: the knot must be compact and “streamlined” – easy to pass through the rings when throwing, pulling out the fish and the usual reeling.
Leader knot. A very simple knot that is often used to tie a mainline to a thick monofilament shock leader. It reliably connects monofilament of different diameters, forms a neat bundle, and is very easy to knit.
The tapered shape of this knot, for which it was named the “carrot knot,” makes it one of the best knots for securing the shock leader to the main line. If you need a knot that won’t get in the way when casting, this is the Carrot knot. It is suitable for tying any combination of lines: with different diameters, yarn structures, and different materials (nylon, fluorocarbon, microfiber).
