THE ALBRIGHT Knot really is one you need to know particularly if you are stepping up the scale into trophy fishing hunting/streamer fishing.
The Albright is your best bet for joining two materials of significantly different diameter, like a heavy butt section and your tippet when streamer fishing, or even the back end of your flyline and your backing.
Another very cool video from the Gink and Gasoline boys featuring our mate Capt. Joel Dickey. Joel is using mono to a wire bite tippet but it works the same for any line combination.
