Loop to loop connection


Use: Joining two lengths of leader material

Description: As well as using this method to join two lengths of nylon, it is also used to connect the looped-end of a leader to a braided loop attached permanently to the end of a fly line. It is quick and easy to do and undo.

Tying:

1. To attach a looped-leader to a loop on the end of a fly line, pass the loop on the end of the fly line through the leader loop.

2. Take the end of the leader and pass it through the loop on the fly line.

3. Pull the leader all the way through the loop to tighten the connection.

Brilliant, posting of knots and loops today! You should compile these in one section, with easy access for new members to learn about knots and joints!

Excellent.
