Just started to get into steelheading. About to pick up a 10.5ft UL noodle rod for next season and was wondering what everyone thinks the best knot to use for flouro leaders was? I've been using a surgeons knot to attach 8lb main mono to 6 or 4 lb flouro. Wasn't sure what the strength of the knot was and I got some break off's and wasn't sure if that was why. Well, my inability to keep the rod bent didn't help at all, but wondering if there is a better knot I can use.
