Learn how to correctly splice mono to braid with this short how-to video. This is a great technique to brush up on in the off season.
The use of topshots and wind-on leaders has exploded in recent years. Many anglers prefer to do this for several reasons. First, it’s more stealth. Second, it’s a very strong connection. It also allows you to use braid, which provides greater capacity and strength while also lasting longer. At the end of the season, or whenever necessary, you can just cut your mono or fluoro out and re-splice. This is a bit more expensive at first, but over time it can save time and money.
