Of course we knew that FG knot should be an ideal leader knot for fishing on lures.
But it took too long for me to tie it.
That's why I used the kaneit knot or the slim beauty knot depending on the fishing situation, my good fishing friend used the albright knot.
I went to Fishing & Outdoor World the other day.
My good friend, Ron Voukolos explained by demonstration how to tie the FG knot for me.
In addition, he recommended me watching the following YouTube Quickest Way to Tie the FG Knot (The Strongest Braid to Leader Fishing Knot) - YouTube .
The FG knot was infinitely easier than I thought it was.
I can tie it better for me at home than I can tie it at my usual fishing locations.
The tides on the day I went fishing were:
05:02am -- 3.36m
10:28am -- 5.46m
17:52pm -- 2.30m
00:20am -- 5.68m
There was a high possibility that barramundi won't take lures from 05:02am to 10:28am.
There was a once-in-a-day chance, I can only fish in the afternoon.
The muddy water was about to mix with the clear water in the shallow water at Channel Island.
I used a dark-colour Mongrel in accordance with the cloudy-skies situation.
