The Albright Knot is a fishing knot developed specifically for joining two lines of different diameters without having to use a swivel or any other hardware at the connection.
With a short wire leader the disturbance of this additional bulk may well be enough to alarm the fish, particularly in clear water.
Probably best known for joining nylon monofilament or fluorocarbon line to a single strand wire leader, but also great a great saltwater fishing knot for connecting one of the very thin spectra or dyneema braid lines to a thicker nylon monofilament or fluorocarbon leader.
Once snugged up neat and tight it's a small knot which won't catch on the line guides on the cast.
First, double back the end of the single strand wire leader and thread the mono through the eye produced.
Then, make about ten turns before tucking the tag end of the mono through the loop such that it emerges on the same side as it entered.
