Hi to all,
Here are instructions for connecting two loops together. The instructions will be placed in the FAQ. Are the instructions complete enough for a beginner to understand. I was thinking about adding a picture between Step 5 and Step 6 showing the line being pulled through the loop. Not sure it is needed.
You need to have two lines with loops in the ends. This is useful for connecting a leader to a fly line or a tippet to a leader. A Perfection Loop or Surgeon Loop can be used. The loops shown in the photos are large for the sake of the demonstration. When fastening a tippet to a leader the loops should be as small as possible.
Place one loop over the other.
Pinch the two loops together between your thumb and forefinger.
Take the end of the line you placed over the other loop and put it through the loop in the other line.
Grasp the end of the line you put through the loop and pull all the slack through the loop.
The two loops will inter-lock like shown in the picture.
Grasp both lines and pull the knot tight.
