I’m going fishing with John from the Daily Double on MLK down in San Diego. We’re riding on the Mission Belle for a 3/4 day out of Point Loma Sportfishing. He had asked me before if I knew how to tie an Albright knot.  I didn’t.  Since I was going to see him, I wanted to try and figure that out, especially since I’m planning to change out the line for the trip on my Medium rig.

I found this great video for tying the Albright. The site also lists all the other important knots I’ve mentioned, like dropper loops. I like how they use big string to illustrate the videos. It makes it easier to visualize what to do, and it’s a thousand percent better than the diagrams that come inside a box of line!
