How to join a Wind-On or a Top Shot to your main line
using a Cat’s-Paw Knot
The Cat’s-Paw knot is simply a loop-to-loop connection between the doubled mainline and the braided loop on your top shot, your wind-on leader or both This knot provides a 100 per cent strong connection and has no tag ends so it travels smoothly through your rod’s guides and tip. First, make a small loop using either a short Bimini Twist or if you’re using hollow core Dacron or Spectra, splice a loop at the end of your mainline. Pass the mainline loop through the tag end of the top shot or wind-on loop. Then pass the front end of the leader or top shot back through mainline loop. Align both loops and pass the leader or wind-on through the center two or three more times. Slowly tighten pulling from both directions making sure to adjust the mainline loop and wind-on loop to keep everything straight during the tensioning process.
