    Joining braid to braid

    Fished offshore on the weekend and lost probably 100m of braid to the bottom. Instead of removing all the braid off the reel and top shotting from the mono backing, I decided to join braid to braid using an improved albright. Has anybody done this? What knot did you use? And have you had any breakages at the knot when snagged up?

    I just double each line using bimini twist then join using double-uni, little convoluted but never breaks.

    Two Bimini's and then a cats paw to join them for me

    Double Uni knot..........even tied one once with a fish on the other end

    What about a single double doubled uni with an extra double twisted uni, doubled?

    So is that a quadruple uni with a couple of twisted unis done twice? Got it!
