Default Re: Castwell's knot - Old flyline to leader knot

That actually happen to me once while striper fishing at night. A nice fish pulled the leader right off.
My flashlight was nearly dead, so the only way I could think of to keep fishing was to strip off more of the line coating and tie a perfection loop in the core. It worked so well that I left it that way for the rest of the season
Hey Rip -- I definitely respect your opinion and you've responded to like 90% of my stupid questions with helpful information .

Would you recommend actually stripping the fly line coating and doing this intentionally? I prefer the loop to loop connecdtion and that sounds like it would work....
