Default Re: Leader to Fly Line with Super Glue??

One of the reasons I have decided to try the super glue method is the fact that it should seal the end of the fly line and prevent the core from soaking up water and sinking. It also should help make it easier to get the line/leader combo back through the guides after landing a fish.

Mike I agree that I have thought for a long time that the method isn't to be trusted due to lack of strength. I still wouldn't dare do it on my 9wt. I'll try it out on my 3wt and go from there. I think I'll run at least an inch or so of leader up into the line and will likely rough up half that to catch the glue.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
