I am trying 50# spiderwire as a leader on my drift rigs. It seems to work well except for the fact that after I catch a fish, big or small, I need to retie. I always retie after the bigger fish, and the smaller ones if the hook is deep, but the spiderwire seems to fray at the eye of the hook on any size fish. I tie a palomar knot, and have never had any problems using it with mono. Any suggestions, or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
