Knots for Stranded/Coated Wire Leaders
I've been chasing some nice Chain Pickerel lately and have found a wire bite leader to be a necessity for me.
I have settled on an Albright for the mono to wire connection but a simple knot that draws up nicely to the hook eye is a pain. I've been using a Palomar because it doesn't involve a lot of wraps but the coating on the wire I use makes the knot bind at the last minute so I gotta figure there is a better option.
Any tricks or suggestions other than skipping the coated wire or wire altogether?
Thanks in advance!
