THE UNI-KNOT SYSTEM -- HOW TO JOIN LEADER TO FISHING LINE
Illustration on how to tie a leader to your fishing line.

The Uni-Knot System uses one basic fishing knot which can be varied to meet virtually every knot tying need in either fresh or salt water fishing.  That was the objective of Vic Dunaway, author of numerous books on fishing and editor of "Florida Sportsman" magazine. 
The Uni-Knot system resulted.  Knot illustrations and directions thanks to Ande Monofilament.

Tie on leader of no more than four times the pound /test of the line.

1.  Double the end of the line and overlap it with the leader for about 6".   Make a Uni-circle with the doubled line.

2.   Tie the basic Uni-Knot, making three turns with the line loop around the two lines and the leader line.

Pull it snug up.

3.   Now tie another Uni-Knot to the left side with the leader around the double line.  Again, use only three turns.
