Default Re: Info for a NEWBY

Loop to loop is a walk in the park, if you get leader with a loop that is. Just pass the loop in the fly line thru the loop in the leader, then pull the rest of the leader they the loop in the fly line and pull snug.
Google "surgeons knot" and "double surgeons knot". They are very easy to tie once you see it done a couple times. YouTube has some excellent vids on them also. I always recommend those knots to anyone just getting into the sport because they are the most user friendly, and will get your line in the water faster
. Once you are addicted -ahemm- i mean passionate about the sport, you will be drawn to the other knots as well. But it's much more fun to fish, than to tie knots. While I can tie others, I use those 2 most all the time.
