  1. Default I NEED HELP (I'm sorry I didn't know where to post my question :( )

    Alright,
    I just bought this fly fishing kit:
    - Single Action Fly reel
    - 9' 4-piece #5/#6 Weight Rod
    - IM-6 Graphite construction
    - 30 yards of weight foward fly line
    - 50 yeards of 20 lb.Backing
    - 7 1/2 4x Tapered Leader

    And I have NO IDEA how to TIE the lines with each other, (I heard I must use all 3 kind of lines)
    And how long each one should be.
    Please if someone could explain me how and based in what(for example, if the rode is bigger, use more line) I should tie the lines.

    I used to fish a lot with regular fish rodes (http://www.****.ro/img/article/31/articlethumb/231.jpg )
    So before start rolling the line in the reel, there is like a little clip to make sure that the line is not going away in case your cast uses all the line.
    And now I have this kind of reel and I have no idea. Should I tie around it? or just start rolling?

    Thanks in advanced for the answers!

    1: Backing to Reel
    2: Flyline to backing
    3: Another Flyline to backing knot

    I like those nifty little nylon loops to attach my flyline to leader, get one of those and attatch it to the end of your flyline. Then tie a perfection loop in the thick end of the leader if there isnt one there already.

    Hope this helps

    Do I need one? Is i t good ?
    Whats the point???
    Thanks for the answer

    You attatch the tippet to the end of your leader and then to your fly. This way everytime you tie/retie a fly on you arnt cutting off some of your leader.

    You want the spool to be filled to capacity just like you would a spinning reel.
