Alberto Knot

How to tie Alberto Knot. The Alberto knot is an excellent line to line fishing knot for joining lines of different diameters and/or composition such as monofilament (or fluorocarbon) leaders to braid line. This is what "Crazy Alberto" Alberto Knie (the knot's inventor) wrote about his knot: "Since the inception of the super lines there was no real mono to braided fishing line knots. And those common knots everyone recommended just didn’t cut it! I actually tried many recommended knots (with frustrations) … so I came up with this knot for myself and I’ve been using ever since. I have a few friends (& some world record friends)
who loves it and will not go back. In fact, it is being well received throughout (from Mexico / Costa Rica / Florida and Canada) and I am glad everyone is enjoying it."

Try the Alberto Knot next time you need to attach monofilament to braid. It just might become your personal go-to knot!
