Default Re: Making Welded Loops In Spey Lines

I've never attempted it but this looks like a pretty solid way to go. This is also pretty similar to Airflo's custom tips lines can be done in a fly shop, though they have a "Welding Center" as opposed to the heat gun like in Tom Larimer's video. I'd be afraid to apply heat by means of direct contact to fly line and would stick with this route. Add to that both Airflo and Tom, I'm sure, know a little something about fly lines.
