Nail knot the braided mono at position #2. Trim off any excess material.

That's what I do, then I coat the nail knot and the transition to the fly line with Loon's UV Knot Sense (Pliobond would be fine too) to add strength and smooth the transition so it passes more easily through the guides.

Hi rjackh,

I push the fly line all the way into the braid as far as I can get it. Place the nail knot at position 2. Before you tighten the knot slide all of the slack out of the braid up towards the fly line and then tighten the knot. Cover with Pliobond or some other flexible glue. You can streamline the knot with the glue. I wouldn't use super glue.

If you cut the braid shorter or put the knot lower on the braid you lose the advantage of the gripping power of the braid.

Frank
