  1. Default Re: Best dropper knot for Euro Nymphing?

    I tie a blood knot about 18" up from my point fly, then add either a loop knot about that or tie in my tag with a simple clinch knot. Using flouro, I rarely tangle and I never suffer any type of line burn. This lets the tag move much more freely, because the tag line can rotate 360 degrees around the main tippet. It's best to use the same diameter tippet for the tag as the main tippet. That keeps things simple and works really well for me.

    Have you tried tippet rings?

    Just curious... it works well with bounce rigs, teams of wets, American nymphing, etc. Don't why it wouldn't work here.

This forms a 90 connection you can slide up and down the leader if you want to adjust the depth of your upper fly. Keep it under 6 inches and you seldom tangle.
    I like this idea. Do you find you need a stopper knot, or does the dropper stay in place?
