The Uni Knot
The fourth knot to use with a baitcasting reel is the uni knot.
The uni knot is a basic knot and can be varied by the fisherman to meet pretty much any need, in fresh or salt water fishing. To tie the knot begin by running the line through the eye of the hook, at least 6” and fold it to make 2 parallel lines. Bring the end back towards the hook; next, make 6 turns with the tag around the double line and through the circle you formed. Pull the tag to tighten the line, then pull the standing line to slide up to the knot created against the eye. Pull until it is at the desired tightness, trim the tag end to ensure the knot doesn’t slip or come undone.
