    Default Nail Knot vs. Albright Knot

    What is the recommended best knot to connect the fly line to the backing - a nail knot or an albright knot? and why is it better? Thanks,

    Default Re: Nail Knot vs. Albright Knot

    I like a loop2loop connection myself
    Makes it easier to swap out the lines when needed
    I use a double whipped loop on the line butt and a Bimini twist or doubled surgeons in the backing
