Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot Connection Guide
Step 1
Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot - Step 1
Overlap approximately 1 foot of the two lines (you will need the large tag ends).

First tie a uni knot with the fluorocarbon. Loop the fluorocarbon next to the braid with the tag end heading toward the mainline of the braid.
Step 2
Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot - Step 2
Run the tag end of the fluorocarbon through the loop around both the braid and the fluorocarbon.

15-20# fluoro - use 6 turns
25-40# fluoro - use 4 to 5 turns
50-80# fluoro - use 3-4 turns
Step 3
Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot - Step 3
Cinch down the uni knot by pulling on both the mainline and the tag end of the fluorocarbon.
Step 4
Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot - Step 4
Now tie an improved clinch knot with the braid. Wrap the braid around the fluorocarbon 10-12 times and then put the tag end through the base of the wraps.
Step 5
Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot - Step 5 Now go around the fluorocarbon and pass the tag end through the big loop that was just formed.
Step 6
Uni Knot to Improved Clinch Knot - Step 6 Tighten the clinch knot by pulling on the tag end and main line of the braid. Take care when doing this so that the coils cinch down correctly (pull up on the coils in order to keep them from overlapping one another when they cinch down).
