    Default Re: Gel-spun to mono

    It's not for fly fishing. It's for connecting a monofilament leader to GSP on spinning gear. Maybe the OP can explain why he's after this knot?

    OP... last paragraph. 100 or so feet between backing & fly line. Acts lik big rubberband or shock absorber when fish starts jumping. Friend will be taking first shots at tarpon w/fly this coming season. Want to give him better chance of landing one.
