JamesIt should also be the aim to see this loop travel all the way down the line and through the leader (a well constructed leader helps). This is great practice for accuracy also.
As always thanks for the advice. My leader is usually for casting practice a 9’ tapered profil or Hardy I haven’t given it a huge amount of thought, just a good gradual taper.
What I notice, or might well be imagining is that where the loop to loop fixing is, something is going amiss at this point of the turn over.
In the past in this thread or another I’ve queried hinging, but actually looking at the nature of the join I realise it’s more likely to be a stiff area rather than a limp area with two tapered materials both doubled up and adding extra bulk and weight and Resistance to a small section at the finest end of the fly line.
I’m assuming if I’ve got this right that loop to loop hampers a smooth transition along to the leader and tippet and although convenient are actually detrimental to a smooth turn over.
Or am I over thinking this ( before I go round cutting the loops of everything).
Thanks for input and sharing your experience.
