flourocarbon to fly line knot
 
Does anybody know what is the best knot for connecting flourocarbon to fly line? I've heard the seaguar knot or the albright. What really is best?

Perfection Loop to Loop. 100 percent line strength.

thanks, but can you explain to me how you join two lines with the perfection loop? I have only seen it in line to lure connections. Do you pass the other line through the loop and repeat the process with it?

The albright knot is a great one also for what your looking to do!

here's a link for the perfection loop. http://www.flyanglersonline.com/begi...tionloop2.html

just make a perfection loop in your main line and then make another perfection loop in the line your trying to attach to. then just slip the one loop over the other and pass the rest of the line through the first loop. after doing a couple you'll have it down pat.

I buy those braided loops to attach to my main flyline then either buy leaders with a loop or tie one.

First I make a loop in my line:

Then I put a perfection loop in my flouro. To connect tippet I use a surgeons knot.

Joni, how do you like the performance of that loop? Does it bind in the guides at all?
