The Double Uni Knot is a great way to connect different materials–for instance, monofilament and fluorocarbon or braid. It’s not a difficult knot to tie, but I always enjoy seeing new ways to tie knots because different people’s brains and fingers work differently. The “96 method” is for anglers who learn better through visualizing the knot. By preparing the lines so they form the numbers 9 and 6, you can set yourself up to tie the two sliding knots. Simple, huh?

Practice this knot using two shoe laces of different colors! That works for other knots also.
Good video; thanks for sharing. Climbers use this knot but have the tag ends come out on opposite sides like a blood knot. That allows the barrels to fit more closely together. Ironically, it’s called the double fisherman’s knot in climbing parlance. My tarpon guide in Matlacha, Florida uses this knot exclusively for leader construction.
