I always cut my fluro leader to length and then tie my palomar knot, because I always end up with the hook up side down if I don't, and then tie the leader to the main line.
Now I have my reel spooled with all fluro and had to tie, cut, re-tie 4 times today just to get my
hook facing up. What the heck am I doing wrong? I tried starting with the hook facing up and down. I think it may have something to do with looping the last loop over the barb side instead of the back of the hook. Pretty frustrating.
