The Double Uni-Knot
Line To Line Connection
The double Uni-Knot is formed by combining two lines,
particularly those of different diameter and material, into one strong
connection. The break strength of this knot is less than 100% but well
over 90%. It's strength can be raised to 100%
by doubling both lines before joining the pair. Really, this is a bit
of overkill as it is sufficiently strong without doing so.
Tying this knot will be difficult for you to tie at first but
with a little practice it becomes much easier. It's one of the best
bass fishing knots for joining main lines and leader when you don't wish
to use a swivel. So it's well worth the effort to learn.
Knot Tying Instructions
- Place the two lines side by side.
- Bend one line's tag end backwards to form a loop.
- With that line make five to seven wraps around "both" lines.
- Stick that line's tag end through and out the loop.
- When connecting monofilamnet line to braided line make five (5) turns with the mono and eight (8) turns with the braid.
- Now, at the same time, pull on the main line and tag end to pull the knot together. DO not pull the knot tight!
- You want he knot to come together and take shape but to remain loose enough to slide along the line.
- Repeat this with the other side forming a second "loose" knot.
- At this point, you will have two loose knots.
- Slowly pull on both main lines at the same time.
- This will bring the two knots together and as you continue to pull they will tighten and snugly seat against one another.
- Clip the two tag ends.
