MrCarter'sRods: I will also point out that if you get a bad casting knot in your braid and have to cut off a bunch, but dont want to waste it. You can use this type of knot for temporary fix in joining long piece of braid you might have discarded, as an "in the field" fix. It wont be perfect, but it will do the job for the day. Just make sure to cut it off later and change out your brad. :)
MrCarter'sRods: Seems a lot like the double uni (Uni-to-uni) knot. Great video.
Robert Dujardin: thanks will use it for reel
Bob Oneill: thanks Mike,I have used this knot for a season off the rocks,I found I had to go back and watch the video a few times as there are critical points to get right,simple but critical.this knot goes through the runners well and I would like to thank you for taking the time to pass on your knowledge.good on you mate
Felipe frança: This is the albright knot...
Modern gun guy: Well that. Did not help
j “jcla45acp” cla: It was an Excellent Video,@d7wind, Check your eyes, I saw it perfectly, That is one Bad Ass Knot.. Thanks for the Video....
d7wind: BLOODY HELL HE CANNOT USE A COLORED NYLON FOR DEMONSTRATION PURPOSES
Mike Concannon: Hello my friend. I too am growing very old these days. I first learned to tie this knot on two lengths of monofilament line. A good way to learn to tie this knot is to start out with 2 different coloured lengths of mono and initially tie the knot with perhaps just 4 or 5 turns on each line, before snugging it up together. As you get the hang of it, increase the number of turns, and only when you can tie the knot successfully, then move onto finer braid lines. Cheers Happy fishing. ;o)
Mike Concannon: I'm pleased you have found the "Double Grinner" useful. By whipping each line around the other with no chance of either cutting into the other, it is truly a 100% knot. It preserves the complete integrity of both lines. I know it takes a little practice to get it right with comparative ease, but it's the best way I have found in many years of joining two dissimilar lines. A couple of practice runs with mono, before moving to use braid is the best tip for starters. Enjoy. ;o)
misterdecor8: Great fishing knot! Extremely reliable. It took me several tries to grasp it. However, it does get easier and faster once you master it. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!!!
Mike Concannon: I'm pleased it has worked for you. It's the best one I found in many years of joining dissimilar fishing lines. ;o)
00JDMSir: My favorite knot thanks mike!
Mike Concannon: Hello James, Take a look at another of my videos here on YouTube under "Samuel Irvin 3" - Conger - 030609 . You will see several Conger Eels in excess of 100 lbs landed. Some managed to snap the hook link, which was 250 lbs BS mono, while thrashing around on the surface, imposing shock loads. The 60 lb leader was attached to 80 lbs braid main line with a "double grinner". It did not fail. It really does what it says on the can, it preserves 100% strength of the lines which you join. ;o)
James Montano: I have seen the knot before with other anglers but have never used it myself. With practice I hope to secure the knot well enough to land some big reds. One question, will this knot hold with heavy game?
Mike Concannon: You may use whatever knot you prefer. If you think it will take you 15 minutes to tie a double grinner, then you clearly are not used to it. The double grinner really does work very well, because at no point does it cut back into the line. Happy angling. ;o)
Chuck Dominique: Right on brother. I also use uni to uni and have had gr8 success. Again, it's all about the drag. If you question the knot's ability to hold, just back off on the drag a bit. Another gr8 knot connecting braid to mono is a bimini twist followed with a worm knot connection. I have never seen this knot fail.
Chuck Dominique: I'm like you Matt. When you are in a hot tuna bite, the last thing I want to do is spend 15 minutes tying a knot that you really don'd have much confidence in to begin with..
Chuck Dominique: Rule of thumb. Make sure you set your drag correctly before putting your bait in the water.... doesn't matter what knot you use if your drag is too tight!!!! Usually that only happens once....
