The Fisherman’s bend is similar in principle to the Uni knot. It’s an excellent knot for joining mono over about 40 lbs breaking strain.
When joining lighter line use a double Uni knot by making five turns rather than the two turns shown. If joining a heavier leader to a lighter mainline, make five turns with the lighter line to make a combined Fisherman’s bend / Uniknot.
