Default Re: How to attach backing to fly line: Best knot??

I just bought 2 new fly lines. I also changed some fly lines from one reel to another and I used Albright knots even though some of the fly lines had welded loops.

I always used nail knots but I didn't trust this knot....especially for my 9 weight line for salmon, pike etc.

I was surprised at how slim an Albright knot really is.

I even used an Albright knot to tie flat shooting mono back line to a fly line. However, I had to make at least 10 wraps because anything under 8 wraps.....the mono would slip.
