How do you tie the paraloop (I've never done one)? Is it just tied in, looped up and down and tied off? Or is there something else going on that I'm not seeing? Also, do you reinforce the base of the paraloop with vertical thread windings, as you would with a regular post?

Thanks,

Allan
I tie it on with the loop foward and build a small thread dam to hold it up, and use the excess to even the body. I have never reinforced any post that I have tied (never even thought to do it), but I do use head cement when it is done. Ill post some pics latter

Thanks Dan, and popperfly

Thanks for the step-by-step, Chris. I'm definitely going to be giving that a try this Spring. Nice technique!

I can use all the extra visibility that I can get with a dry these days; particularly since I can't seems to break my old habit of casting long whenever possible..
