Anyone know a good knot for mono to fluorocarbon? I am using 12 pound maxima mono and 8 pound fluorocarbon.
Do you guys let the knot go through your rods eyes ?

Uni to uni for mono to mono and yes I let it go through the eyes.

For braid to mono I like an FG knot.

will the Uni to uni work for mono to fluorocarbon
What are the applications for mono to Floro? I鈥檓 not being my sarcastic self here, curious to learn something new.

I'm using it with spoons for steelhead fishing and float fishing
I use the double uni on my surf fishing rod, braid to fluorocarbon leader. Works great.
I really like the alberto knot - I use it for braid to fluoro though, not sure if it works same for mono to fluoro. Blood knot is another good one to look into. Most important part is that you are comfortable tying the knot - if you can't tie it properly it wont work like its supposed to.
For sheer strength uni-uni.... but at the cost of SIGNIFICANT bulk.

Blood knot will be MUCH slimmer profile if it must go thru the guides... but much more attention to tightening it WITHOUT heat stress. Pull it TIGHT to seat the knot and trim tag ends flush to coils. If tightened correctly, you can trim it THAT close without fear, but understand you will lose 30% of the unknotted strength.... TROOF!
Albright with 9 wraps, small knot if your casting it thru the guides,,,gregg

Mono to fluro ? ? ?
Its that FG knot or something similar if I remember correctly. There has been many threads on this.....
Question why Fluorocarbon? In close to 35 years of journal notes I cannot find where it gave me a constant significant advantage over straight mono. I do find using a 25 lb. fluorocarbon bumper is advantageous when throwing spoons for Northern Pike (not for visibility but for abrasion resistance) and 40-50 lb. when throwing bucktails and glide baits for Muskies (again for abrasion resistance but also it allows for glide baits to work more freely without weighting down the nose like wire can). However, back to back 4-5 turn uni-knots work well for me.

I gave up fooling with the latest and greatest line's and just stay with mono to mono. Been tying it together for a lot of years and never a problem.

Seagaur knot for mono to fluro and FG knot for braid to mono/fluro. I mostly use these on 20# plus lines, so some of the other knots mentioned may work better on the smaller lines.
I started using a knot I saw on the 'net. The GT knot is easy and so far so good.
Full disclosure, most of the time when I add a flouro or mono leader, I use a swivel.

Now I am confused again. Mono to mono? Like a heavier line on the spool then joined to a lighter line down to lure?

John Collins knot.
So John Collins, Modified Albright and Crazy Alberto are all the same knot?

I spent my first 6 months of this insanity tying knots at the kitchen table to gain confidence and have some sort of strange love of this topic. These days I can tie many knots by feel without my reading glasses.

For example, I can tie the FG knot but find it needlessly complicated for salmon and steelhead and can鈥檛 tie it on the river.

I can鈥檛 get a GT know to stick to save my life.

Yep!
