Re: Need some help guys....fly line loop
I make loops like Frank does, except, I don't leave a gap in the thread. I will connect the line together, put a little super glue on the doubled over section, wrap with thread til the loop is the size I want it, whip finish, and then coat the thread with flexament or some other pliable cement.
Now, I have used nail knots for leader to fly line, but I tie them so infrequently I am not very good at them and I find loops much easier to work with if you have to replace a leader on the water.
I have never had a loop as described fail, but most of the fish I catch are in the 10 lb or less range.
