Re: Dressing a modern floating fly line.
The GPX lines have a loop from he factory, and while I was skeptical about
their durability, they've lasted just fine. Prior to using GPX lines, I used a short section of mono that I used to needle nail knot to the line, but then
used Dave Whitlock's CA connection. The CA connection is VERY secure, and
I've put it to the test with flies stuck up in trees
! I don't think there's
much difference between the factory loop, and a section of mono with a
loop. I've seen where some people cut the factory loop off, and then add
a mono section.
