Default How Do I fasten two loops together

Hi to all,

The following tutorial shows the proper way to fasten two loops together.

Step 1

You need to have two lines with loops in the ends. This is useful for connecting a leader to a fly line or a tippet to a leader. A Perfection Loop, a Surgeon Loop or a Non-Slip Mono knot can be used. The loops shown in the photos are large for the sake of the demonstration. When fastening a tippet to a leader the loops should be as small as possible.
