Wed, November 23, 2022

The ability to tie a strong and reliable leader knot to connect braided lines to fluorocarbon leaders is a valuable skill for any angler. While the FG knot is known for being one of the smallest and strongest knots that comes through your rod guides smoothest, it is not the easiest knot to tie and involves numerous deliberate steps. The Crazy Alberto knot is a great alternative for anglers who maybe don't have the time or simply don't want to learn the complicated steps of tying an FG knot. In this video, Omnia Fishing's Joe Ponessa goes over the easy steps on how to tie the Crazy Alberto knot, which is a strong alternative to the FG knot that comes through your rod guides better than most leader connection knots.
