Line-to-line knots have become a big discussion point with the meteoric rise of braided fishing line. Many anglers still want a section of fluorocarbon or monofilament line for a leader though – factors like reduced visibility and the forgiveness of stretch are top reasons. There’s a ton of good knots out there, but the Modified Albright is tried and true for the meanest saltwater fish, and also excels for the rigors of bass fishing. Bassmaster Elite Series/Carhartt pro Matt Lee cut his teeth earning an engineering degree, so he doesn’t take technical matters lightly. He expertly demonstrates how to tie the Modified Albright knot in this visually well-supported video.
