I've had good luck with a Uni to Uni for tying to drastically different diameters together such as in the case of a tippet to a leader. It also works quite well on 10lb test to a 30lb floro leader

Funny thread 5 years later...

Nowadays stripers get straight 20# fluoro loop to loop connection to the fly line.

Uni to uni to mono or braid.

Such a great example of the way we change over time. The internet is good in many ways.
