The Best Wire To Leader Knot: Albright Special (With The Secret Hollywood Twist)
By: Joseph Simonds on March 5, 2019
It’s knot time!
If you’re targeting toothy fish like mackerel, sharks or barracuda, you’re going to need a wire leader.
Sure, you could use a swivel to connect your mono or fluorocarbon leader to the wire leader, but that extra hardware might tip off the fish that there’s something not quite right, and result in fewer strikes…
Use the Albright Special to tie your wire leader directly to your mono or fluorocarbon leader.
In this video Capt. Mark Johnson, aka “HOLLYWOOOOD”, from Florida Keys Fun Fishing teaches us how to tie the Albright Special.
Plus, he’ll show you the secret “Hollywood Twist” to keep the wire from accidentally slicing you or anyone on your boat.
