Re: Loop connection
Are you talking about from the end of your fly line to the leader butt?
If so, I nail knot a piece of Amnesia (or you could you Mono, if you like) to the end of the flyline. I put a perfection loop on the other end. I usually make it about 2-3" long.
I don't use tapered leaders. The furled leaders already have loops on the end, so it's an easy connection.
It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?
