    If you’re running trolling gear, there’s nothing better than using a wind on leader.

    For a wind on, you will need to use a Bimini twist to tie a double in your main line and then loop it several times using a cats paw connection to the wind on leader. This is very reliable connection and doesn’t risk undoing itself while trolling like a newly tied FG can do.
