1. Albright Special Knot
This knot was made famous by the well-known Florida guide Jimmy Albright, and is worthy enough to bear his name. It's an excellent knot for tying light test to heavy line. It also can be used to connect line to wire cable, nylon-coated wire, and even to small diameter single-strand wire leader.
