A rapala knot is also great for jigs.

Either of those are good knots, but I prefer the fg knot when tying braid to flo/mono. It's a stronger knot over the uni and surgeons knots.

And it's knot (pun intended) that hard to tie, just remember to cinch it tight before nipping the tag ends.

Nice flatties, how was the water clarity, stained or really clear? Thanks

I'm done with the fg. I had one slip on a big kingfish in a tournament and yes it was tied correctly and cinched down. It's a pain to tie on the water anyway. The double uni has never failed me.

The water I fish in is close to the open ocean and is usually fairly clear.
