    Default Re: Backing to fly line question?

    Form a loop in the fly line using tying thread. loop to loop the fly line to backing. cover the loop to loop in more thread and cover that thread in 3ms marine glue. i guarantee 80lb shock tippet will break first.

    Default Re: Backing to fly line question?

    I like a small drop of Zap A Gap on the knot coils. After it's dry a small bead of knot sense on the end of the line where the backing lays against the fly line to round the end. I have used a needle nail knot where the backing comes out of the center of the line & just used the Knot Sense to smooth it out but the needle knot kit somehow disappeared in the bowels of my basement.
