here is a little clip on tying the Spider hitch. What knots do you us to tie your mainline to leader?
thats the first knot i used to tie, i found it failed quite often, i now tie a grinner knot around leader and a granny knot in the leader
Second part of that linking spider hitch loop to leader looks like a yucatan knot. Easier to tie by wrapping the looped mainline around a straight leader then take the tag end of leader through the mainline loop:here is a little clip on tying the Spider hitch.

I use a bimini twist instead of spider hitch and the yucatan or slim beauty. The loop and doubled mainline makes for a much stronger knot.With the one in ur video, does having two bits of line in-between the mainline and shockleader not cause u any trouble?
