What's the best knot to use to fasten mono to spool?

The recommended knot for securing mono to a spool is the improved clinch knot. This knot is known for being secure, safe, and strong when used with mono or fluorocarbon lines. It is also easy to tie, making it a popular choice among anglers.

To tie the improved clinch knot, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Start by threading the end of your mono line through the eyelet of your fishing lure or hook.
  2. Create a tag end by pulling out 8 to 10 inches of line.
  3. Take the tag end and wrap it around the main line (the line going to your rod and reel) 6 to 8 times.
  4. After completing the wraps, pass the tag end through the loop that was created near the eyelet.
  5. Moisten the knot with water or saliva to lubricate it.
  6. Slowly pull on the tag end to tighten the knot, while also sliding the wraps towards the eyelet.
  7. Trim any excess tag end.

The number of wraps you make can vary depending on the weight of your line. Generally, lighter lines require more wraps for added security. However, it's always a good idea to test the knot's strength before heading out on your fishing trip.

3 Fishing Knots Everyone Should Know! by TacticalBassin pound braid and their diameter is quite different in the case that this was a mono or a fluoro you might be talking about a 20 or a 30 or a 40 pound braid trying to tie to a six or an eight or a ten pound fluorocarbon in the event that it's not working what you do is you continue with the nine loops on the braided side six seven eight and nine pull myself a little more line here across that center point but then on my leader material side fluoro or mono normally of course here we're still using braid I go less loops but the less loops you do the weaker that line will potentially become for that connection will become so I'll only go maybe six or seven one two three four five six put it through there go ahead and cinch it up of course you would wet that not there's a good clean not nine loops on one side six on the other so I will always start with nine and nine because that's my strongest knot I trust it the most but as you go to lighter lines and you begin to have problems getting them to cinch down correctly you can go to nine and eight nine and seven nine and six if I get there and it still won't tie I drop my main line my braid side down to seven and I go seven and seven seven and six

What's The Best Fishing Knot? | Bass Fishing by Bass Fishing Tips & Techniques by BassResource One of the things I can tell you is on those slips is you've got to do a lot of wraps. So, a minimum, to me, I think is about six. Six wraps. And if you use two pounds, or three pounds for trout, which I do sometimes, I use eight wraps. Because it's literally almost a hundred percent, up in the high 90's, 98%, 99% knot strength. The same thing with braid. Braided line, I use anywhere from ten to fourteen wraps. The lighter I go, the more wraps I do. The fluorocarbon, now, you'll notice, I always fish on the heavier lines. They'll be a little big, but it's never affected the way they hit it, and it's so strong that that's all I use. I do connect the fluorocarbon to the braid with the same knot. I just do two of them, so. I can show you some of that stuff later. Hi, I'm Aaron Martins here with Limit Out Marine in Washington. I'm going to show my knot that I use. It's an old saltwater knot. It's called a uni. You can call them Razo knot. Razo takes a little bit of credit for it, but I think a lot of salt water guys always double their knots. Basically it's a uni knot doubled, with the line doubled. It makes you able to do it on the drop shot rig. If you do it singly, you've got a long tie again, but if you double it, you have a short loop.
