The Uni Knot is good and dependable. It’s a good viable option to tie Monofiliment fishing line to leaders or hooks. I personally find it easier to tie than the Improved Clinch Knot and it’s got the same reliability.
Before tying your fishing knot you take these steps to increase strength:
- Get the Uni knot wet with water or spit before fully tightening.
- Get the Uni knot as tight as possible.
- Trim the excess end off the fishing line.
