Default Knot Recomendation

I have 10 lb braid on a few of my rods for trout fishing that I have been tying on a swivel and then a 4 lb flouro leader. When my kids use this set up they keep reeling the swivel in through the guides causing them to tangle up the line at the tip when they try to cast with the swivel among the guides.

I have been trying a few knots (yucatan and modified version i used to tie heavier mono backing to the braid) to tie the flouro to the braid but the flouro keep slipping through the knot or breaking when i cinch it down.

looking for some suggestions that work for oothers with this setup.

Thanks in advance.

YouTube uni to uni. Easy & plenty strong for all things freshwater. Always moisten before you cinch!

Another option is the FG knot. Like the uni-uni, you can find it all over YouTube.

It would be way easier to just use straight 4lb test monofilament. There is no reason to use braid for trout fishing in New Jersey. Especially with kids.

Albright knot has served me well for years now in both fresh and saltwater. Slick strong knot the goes through guides well. Easy to tie with little practice.

^^^^^
i'd do 4# fluoro, but otherwise agree. braid is just complicating things, it does not provide any benefits for trout fishing in NJ.
