The smallest and strongest version of the FG Knot. I never liked using half hitches to secure the FG Knot so I came up with this alternative version using the same knot that is used when finishing a bimini twist. I have never had this knot fail.

My current line & leader setup:

I like that finish on the leader, but I still think I would like to add the half hitches after the tag end. It might weaken the braid just a bit, but I feel like it adds some bulk to help the transition between the leader and the braid.

Have you ever wrapped a guide on a rod?

How you "tie off" the thread might work for finishing the FG knot.

It’s called a Rizzutto finish and has been popular for years, lots of FG’s on YouTube using it. You can actually snip the leader tight to the Rizzutto, but only after knot is well tightened. Makes for as smooth a transition through the guides as you can get.
