: Loop to Loop connectors?

03-11-2005, 02:55 PM
i just purchased a new spey line and just wondering what kind of loop connector i should put on it? I know there's a few commercials ones out there but i've heard good and bad things about them........well mostly bad, and since i don't really intend to fish for small fish i wouldn't wanna loose my sink tip on a fish or a snag for that matter because of the bloody thing pulling out on me. maybe someone has a good " recipe" for a home made one?
thanks any help greatly appreciated

There is a great step by step by Peter S-C in the great lakes steelhead section on putting loops on lines for tips.
