For Connecting Lines Of Different Diameters, Or Materials.
The Albright Knot is one of the best ways of joining two pieces of line of different diameters. It's slightly bulky, but easy to learn.
Double over the end of the heavier piece of mono, forming a loop, pinch between thumb and forefinger of your left hand to hold together. Pass the end of the lighter line through the loop at least 8 to 10 inches.
Catch tag end of lighter line under your left thumb, and hod tight to heavier strands of loop. Wrap first turn of lighter line back over itself and continue wrapping toward round/closed end of loop.
Make at least 12 to 15 wraps back toward round end of loop, then pass tag end of lighter line back through loop. Note you must pass it back through the same side it entered the loop.
Moisten knot with saliva, use the thumb and forefinger of your left hand to slide the coils toward the round end of the loop, until you are about 1/8 inch from the end. Use pliers to pull tag end of lighter line, then pull on the standing part of both lines, pull tag end of lighter line a second time. Trim tag ends close.
