How to tie the Aussie Quickie Knot. The Aussie Quickie is a braided line to fluorocarbon leader joining knot popularized by Australian skipper Captain Scott Walker. The knot starts out with a double line in the braid usually formed by a Bimini Twist. Once the Bimini is tied, the Aussie Quickie attaches the fluorocarbon leader in a matter of seconds. The Yucatan Knot is essentially the same knot but tied in a different manner. There is an interesting dynamic here; with the Yucatan, the wraps are made with the double line and with the Aussie Quickie they are made with the single line leader. But with both knots, when pulled tight, the coils form in the leader material and the finished knots look identical! The Bristol Knot, also called the No Name Knot, is very similar. All of these make good knots for connecting a double line braided system to a fluorocarbon leader. Practice tying a few of them and pick the one that you like the best.
