Berkley’s Gary Klein Teaches Fluoro Knot

Check out this easy-to-tie knot for fluorocarbon!


Berkley’s Gary Klein has a great knot tying tip for you. All the top bass fishermen around the world are using flurocarbon either as a leader in combination with braided or mono main lines or in one of the formulations of fluorocarbon designed to fish as both a mainline and invisible leader.

Fluorocarbon has its own unique properties that can make for some tricky knot tying if you don’t have some tricks up your sleeve yourself. ┬áKlein said this is particularly true when it comes to using fluoro line in combination with hard baits such as the crankbait shown in this video.

Watch the video a couple times and then give the knot a try yourself. Note that Klein says you should end up with three tag ends to trim. Then head out on your kayak and start chucking those cranks. Pre-spawn bass love to jump on the crankbaits ripped along the banks. Have fun.

Berkley’s Gary Klein is a legendary bass pro and shows us how to tie a knot perfect for connecting fluorocarbon to hard baits.
