Shrink tubing is useless. That is why Rio does not provide it.

Tie a nail knot with 8 to 15 pound test monofilament near the tag end of the braided loop. The monofilament will create an anchor point, so it can tighten onto the fly line. Clip off any excess braided loop fibers. Coat the knot with Pliobond.

Thanks for the info worked good, I nail knotted the top and bottom of the nylon loop with 8lb and sealed with zap a gap.

over wrap with a flat non waxed thread at the end of the braid (1/2 to 1") then cover in softex...ca glues make it to hard and creates a hinging effect.
