Damaged Fly Line?
I have been hearing some folks say that cutting a floating fly line to tie a new leader on damages the fly line and it will not float. Is this something that I have been doing wrong? I have always tied a nail not to the line because I like how the not goes through the guides better. I have not liked the fly lines with the built in loop because it has seemed to catch on the guides. If there is a problem, I would bite the bullet and buy a line with built in loops.
