What’s the best way to connect leadcore line to leaders and backing?


My favorite method is to take about 4 to 6 inches of the lead out of the end of the leadcore and tie in a small swivel (size #16) with a Clinch knot (4 wraps). Then tie your leader, either FireLine, Mono, or Fluorocarbon, to the other side of the swivel using an Improved Clinch or a Trilene Knot (6 to 7 wraps on this one). The #16 swivels seem to come through the rod guides of our Bass Pro Shopd Walleye Angler Signature Series rods very well – even under the load of a fish.
