Knots for interline

Post  Aaron on Thu Mar 14, 2013 2:54 pm

I know some members including myself have purchased interline rods for the upcoming season, and some of you already have used them, whats knots do you find that work best with the least resistance and snagging?

The Daiwa Sokkou is a great little device but the knot doesnt seem suited to interlines?..

Double Uni?
Slim Beauty?
Improved Albright?

Went through this whole thing when I got my interline. I tie a pr knot now just because its nice and thin and is very stong. The downside however is it takes ages to tie. The knot that daiwa recomends is a variation of the slim beauty. I will post a link to it. Not a huge fan of the albright as it has a tendency to hook into the braid and randomly come loose after a few days fishing.

Right for all who have recently bought an interline it is worth having a read of the owners manual that daiwa have on their website here (as more than likely any paperwork you recieved with the rod is in japanesse):

http://daiwafishing.com.au/?page_id=6195

They have on there a page on the recommended knots:

http://daiwafishing.com.au/?p=5242

And heres the knot they reccomend you use.



Now I used this knot for awhile and its preaty good, its slim, it has a high breaking strain but it will hold together a bit better if you put a drop of superglue on the end of the knot after tieing.

Unless i am platting a join, i only ever use an albright to permanently join leaders
i use it from 2 - 60kg no problems
if your knot is coming undone, it's not tied right
only issue is that it's only about 80.% and a little bit bulky in heavy leader

Guys take note of the leader length of your having problems also.The traditional guides are abit more forgiving.Well said G and Andy but ill stick to my sagar knot.

G its that 80% that I think annoys me the most about the albright. If you get a snag it can mean the difference between getting a jig back. The albright is a very easy knot to tie.

Also as the tag is facing up the rod on an albright knot it tends to get guide wrap (not such an issue on the interlines).

I would stick with the diawa knot as it is the manufactures recommendation. I know our sponsor Steve at the tackle shop had a bulky knot get stuck in his master tournament z interline and had to get the rod tip end replaced.

i run a normal slim beauty with just 1 stand of braid to do the knot not double as feels like a waste of braid and makes it bulkier, using PE 0.8 braid (10lb) and 10lb fluoro i have no problems with the interline i have my knot half way between the reel and the interline guide and it goes through with ease. I also use this knot for all my estuary fishing having pulled up 5-7kg cod on lock drag out of some nasty stuff and have never had it pop.

I agree with Andy, it's a slim beauty
if i am wanting 100% from my line class, I will tie a double first and do the albright with double line
my tag end of the main line stands out the side of the completed knot and the tag of the leader is cut hard up to the first roll of the braid.

Question reply

Post  Jollybox on Tue May 07, 2013 2:30 pm

I have several interlines and the hardest thing is finding suitable wind on leaders. I wonder if anyone has tried 'casting-flurocarbon' (Berkley Vanish for example) on the reel and tie-ing the jig directly to the FC? No leader... no worries about knots.

I am new to fishing in general, even newer to egi-ing so please excuse my questions if they are too simple!

Hi Jellybox (Post up a bit about you in the introductions section)

I assume your interlines are the heavy gamefishing types. The ones we use are only 3-6kg rods so a wind on leader would be pointless.

You could use straight through flurocarbon but there a a number of major drawbacks ( although one of our members Mug uses this I think)

1. Braid casts further than fluro/mono
2. Braid doesnt have any stretch so its easyer to impart action to jigs
3. Fluro sinks

I now tie a version of the PR knot with a bobbin, takes about a minute and is super strong. I am far from a knot guy but with a bobbin it was so easy I was happy using my first attempt at the PR knot and it didn't let me down.

I found this video for an FG knot:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52uWL43hUbw

I found it VERY easy to do after watching this video a couple of times and this knot is very slim.

Having used an interline rod now for a couple of seasons, I use an improved Albright, and have never had a problem or breakoff. Quick and easy to tie  Very Happy
