    I've decided to take some of the advice I've seen here and begin tying my own leaders. I finally managed to get the hang of snelling the hooks (and have the sore fingers to prove it!).

    My question now is, what knot do ya'll use for tying heavy florocarbon to swivels?

    Palamar all the way. They are simple and easy to tie,and have good strength.
