Braided Leaders

Has anyone else ever had Bluegills follow your braided leader connection instead of your fly?

I don't use a braided leader connection, but I've had them hit the knots in my leaders. Must look like bugs to the fish. I've also seen carp shy away from leaders with knots.

Do you have pickerel where you fish? I'll bet they would probably take a swipe at your leader connection too.

There are some pickerel, but I've never had one on them follow the line.
